yep more sad news, for thouse that may not know, Ray visited the club many times over the years tipicly for the aerotow events as he was a keen glider pilot. He also took many of our longer served members for the Achivment certs.

You may have also read his glider articles in the monthly BMFA News.

Sorry to hear about Ray, just seen the messages. I was intending to mail him regarding a gliding subject too ! Another modelling character lost.
