2019 ‘New Year’ at Chouet

After quite a number of postponed efforts, we finally were blessed with a fine Sunday on the 24th Feb and a few hardy souls gathered together to enjoy a cup of something warming and have a natter about modelling in general. A small number of aircraft were flown, including a new aircraft from Kevin Stephens, and the following photographs (courtesy of Geoff B) will give you some idea of the event.
