Tuesday 12th September 2017
Our next trip will be by coach to RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk. We must get between
25 and 40 people going, including the coach driver. A coach is compulsory, as we
will be driven around the base.
Depending on numbers, the coach will work out to between £19 and £30 each, obviously
the more who come the cheaper it is per head.
All visitors MUST bring a government issued valid ID, either Passport or Driving
License and they must not be expired.

Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds
Review by Roger Hixon
I have just read the book, Fighter Pilot. It's the story of American pilot Robin
Olds. A very enjoyable story of a very interesting man, who was involved in many
aspects of aviation, from front line fighter/bomber pilot, to working in the Pentagon.
He fought in WW2 and Vietnam, with distinction.
Anyone wanting to read this book, please contact me to borrow it.

from the classroom to the simulator, and eventually to their first flight with hundreds
of paying passengers
