Flying Flea

Postby SteveSlater » Sun Aug 12, 2018 11:28 am

A lovely piece with a very young Bill Cole and a young Julian Pettifer on the HM290 G-AXPG.

At the time, PFA Chief Engineer John Walker did not like it so Bill got it cleared via ARB/CAA with help from Harold Best Deveraux and Darryl Stinton.

Luckily Bill didn’t hold it against us and he remains an active member of the LAA Kent Strut!

I have never seen that before - many thanks Steve for posting it. What a wonderful short film of the (very) young looking Bill. He is still very keen on the Flying Flea and willing to talk at length about them. He has one (or more) still in his hangars.
