My blog ... updates ... news
Probably my last event of 2019, I was warmly welcomed at Turweston by the Vintage Aircraft Club at their All Hallows Fly-In ... where I met up with several old aviation friends including Tony Bianchi who keeps a little fleet of classic aeroplanes there. This photo shows me standing next to Tony's replica Sopwith Camel - very appropriate!
Interest in my new book continues, 18 sold on this occasion, and VAC members told me they enjoyed my little talk about Captain Armstrong.
Huge thanks to Ian Flint and the wonderful team at Stow Maries First World War Aerodrome for their kind welcome to me on 21 September. Large numbers for their Heritage Open Day (not far short of 700) and the perfect location for a book-signing. Twenty books sold and none taken home! The gift shop also took a few to sell - many thanks for that.
To my joy, it seems an illustrated book about a legendary First World War pilot is an ideal Christmas gift for a favourite uncle or pilot friend. To my extra joy, I met two aerobatic girls from the United States (Iris and Anna) who'd randomly popped in to Stow Maries and loved it. They also bought two books. Happy days!
I'll be signing copies of my new book on Saturday 21 September at Stow Maries First World War Aerodrome near Chelmsford and Maldon, Essex. This is their Heritage Open Day with free entry to the public, and I can't wait to see the changes they've made since I was last there. It's an authentic aerodrome with fascinating First World War history and interactive exhibits, family-friendly and dog-friendly, complete with restaurant and gift shop. I'll have Camel Pilot Supreme for sale, also A2 art prints of some of its paintings for framing (see my Online Store).
