Were you there?

Boxing Day Scramble, 1958

This photograph of the Club assembled at the Boxing Day event at Newtonards Aerodrome in 1958 was provided by Derek Wilson, still active in the North Down Model Engineering Society in the Transport Museum, and scanned by John Black.

We are hoping to make contact with old members for the purpose of a Reunion get together sometime in 2012.

Members we can recognize are: Gillis Telford, James Wade, Derek Graham, Maurice Doyle, Derek Wilson, Tommy Cranston, Frank Jackson, still active in NIMSA,  Norman Tayor, Peter Valentine, Davy Black, Nick, Ronnie Armstrong, also active in NIMSA, Brian Wicklow, Barry McGrath, Paul Wilson. Can you give us any more names?

Hopefully we will have a few more pics in the near future for you to remember days gone by.

Please any old members of the club get in touch, we would love to hear from you and add you to our list of Friends of the Belfast Model Flying Club.

You never know you might get bitten by the Control Line flying bug again..
