The Beech in good hands at Edenvale

Phil and I have been trying to catch up with domestic and social life back in Bristol but we also had discussions with RGV  regarding the future maintenance programme of G-BKGM. 

In the meantime, Chris the engineer at Edenvale/Canada has inhibited the Beech, put her feet warmers on and looked after her. A great relief to know that she is in safe and good hands for the winter!

I have finally replaced my lost video camera with a more sophisticated piece of camera and sorted tons of photographs and videos.

But we also received some wonderful photos from our friends which I would like to share with you here. The first couple of shots were taken by professional aviation photographer Richard Paver on the 18th of June flying in Andrew Holman-West's Yak 52 G-BXAK.

Our Beech was flown by pilot John Herbert and in the right hand seat was engineer Roger Shepherd. 
The back seats were occupied by Phil's son Nick Dunnington and myself. We flew for ca 30 mins up to Worcester and back via Cheltenham.

We also received some stunning photographs by one of the RV pilots, Rogier Westerhuis who has just relocated to Boston/US. 

Thanks Rocky for your marvelous photos of the Beech over the breathtaking mountain scenery of northern Canada!

And finally - journalist Paula Froehlich - has published an interesting article about our touch down at the spooky American Air base Bluie East 2 in Greenland. Read her story here:
