|A new year, a new start!|
It's been a while since I have last posted anything on this blog as Roger, the best Beech 18 engineer, had put Betty into her 'winter hibernation' beauty sleep at Charlton Park/Malmesbury.
Phil and I in the meantime went out to Burma to earn some urgently money with ballooning to pay for Betty's expensive life-style. We are now back for the summer and keen to start again on our project with a new team of pilots and a beautiful aeroplane that's probably never been in better shape than right now!
But Betty has been under serious threat of being eaten alive by little hungry rodents, if it hadn't been for the bravery of Roger trying to save her life (not without sacrificing parts of his body on her account!).
Read the story here as seen through Roger's eyes:

NOTE: We are planning to get Betty flown back to Staverton this coming Saturday the 1st of April. If all goes well, she will hopefully arrive at Gloucester Airport sometime between 1-2pm! Watch out for her!
