    Default 91 and flying high

    91 year old Neville Croucher, an ex-Hurricane pilot who flew hundreds of hours during WWII, recently took his first ever flight in a Spitfire. See link below for more details and video of his flight. Earlier, Neville Croucher was a baker boy - vowed to join the RAF after being strafed by a German fighter whilst on his delivery round.

    Anyone who fancies a go, they're taking bookings now priced at 4,900 for 20 minutes supposedly starting as of the 1st of July. But you do get a jolly in both a Harvard and Tiger Moth as well for that.....
