On the beautiful sunny morning of Friday 26th October, Squadron Leader Nigel Harradine, Flight Lieutenant Ben Coleman and a couple of stowaways Chris Barnard and Reggie Williams made a giant leap for mankind as they took to the air in hope of reaching Prested Hall. It was never in doubt.
Our fearless pilot touched down on a wonderfully narrow runway only a stones throw from our destination.
After 2 hours or Realers we had 2 hours of Padel and then a dip in the pool was needed before re-testing our drinking arms.
After 2 more hours of Tennis the following morning we made the return flight and huge respect to Captain Harradine for having to be re-routed and then landing with zero visibility in an instrument only landing in driving rain and strong winds.
Thank you to the team at Prested and massive fun was had by all.
P.S Reggie may need new pants after the landing. Over & Out.
