Well here we are well into the New Year now in this issue we continue with team profiles this time it’s our Chairman Mike Eastman. I don’t apologise for printing this in full, I did think about trimming it down a bit but found that it would detract to much from Mikes life in aviation so here it is printed in full, also a day spent at the Aviation Bookshop meeting Whirlwind Pilots and digging out a Peregrine.

Can anyone spot the mistake in the sign!
The Cooper details kit is quite old and would have to be searched for.
And finally some sales pitch.
We have for sale a number of Prints from a painting by Dave Gibbings MBE of the Prototype Whirlwind in flight. These are signed by the Artist and also by Henry Davenport, H Penrose and W Petter all well known names to do with Westlands.
