G-ANSZ

Post by adysmith » 02 Aug 2019, 19:00

By a bit of research I have noted that this aircraft, a Heron, was one of the last to be flown by Dave Booker (30-07-14) and has not been flown since.

I have taken the liberty of transferring this aircraft to Storage at Kemble for long term preservation.

Can it (should it?) be marked as non flying for preservation?

Would be a nice tribute Ade :thumbsup: I'm sure the aircraft could be made unusable and a explanatory comment attached
At the time I had issues with the Flight Replica's Herons Landing lights being read incorrectly by FSA. Dave put his Captains hat back on, and flew for the VA to prove to Flight R the problem existed. His efforts persuaded Flight Replicas to reverse their Landing light logic :fly: :fly: :fly:

Brilliant idea.

I have changed the AC name to "Dave Booker's Last Flight" and placed it "On Hold".

Great idea. Can it be stored at Brooklands where Dave worked on his Vanguard?

If Brooklands still had an airfield and a code then yes, but it would be difficult without that
