Jersey Aero Club – Helping Hands day – Saturday 4th October

Every year Jersey Aero club hold a charity day for children to come and visit the aero club and, wether permitting, get near to and fly in a local aircraft around the island. All the pilots give up their time and ‘planes to do this and its a great success and such a bit hit with the kids.

I promised to take the Sherwood along so they got a chance to see some real wood and metal close too and they certainly seemed to enjoy the ‘touchability’ of the whole experience !

Airport firecrew were on hand to retrieve her when the end gate was locked on the Sunday preventing me from getting out !
