Flypast a great success

Flypast a great success

The BMAA microlight fly past over Wootton Bassett took place on Saturday 28 August. Over 135 microlights took part, including a 5 aircraft 'missing man' formation as a mark of respect for those who have fallen while serving our country.

Chief organiser and BMAA Safety Officer Kim Taylor was delighted with the event, which went very smoothly and without incident. Kim expects that the fly past will have raised in total over 2000 for Help for Heroes. Donations can be made here.

The fly past was reported in local news including ITV West television:
