The Red Arrows were there of course,
and their display base just outside the LAA tent
ensured a steady stream of visitors for us.
Many of the Red Arrows support team
signed Speedy's cowling.
|The Pedal Planes proved
with the smallest visitors.
There was even a time set aside
|It was hoped to fly-in the
Build-a-Plane G-SPDY, Spirit of Devon Youth,
but the weather was poor on the planned day.
On the Sunday, the weather was again poor
and "Speedy" stayed in the tent instead.
The visitors got a chance to see the plane
built by the Devon Cadets and Scouts,
while sheltering in the tent.
While some built and flew rubber-powered
aircraft, others made gliders
from foam plates and sheet,
then tested their flying abilities.
|Over 90 foam plates were
made into gliders
during the week-end, and another
20 Concorde and Vulcan gliders were
cut from foam sheet, balanced and flown.
|The table got pretty crowded at
the youngsters built and coloured the aircraft.
|Some of the youngsters
got ready for a
career as Pilot or Air-Traffic Controller
by practising their radio calls
and the phonetic alphabet.
Thanks go to the many LAA Members on the stand
who ensured the visitors were able to find out about the LAA,
and enjoy the range of Activities.
