“Don’t Wait” – The importance of not getting bogged down in Brexit, and the risk of losing out by waiting for Brexit to happen.
CBYA member, John Hayward, of The Spectrum IFA Group invited CBYA members to a lunch on Thursday 4th April at Restaurant A bordo, Club Náutico de Jávea. Some twenty one members enjoyed a fabulous lunch, which was originally timed to be after 29th March (Brexit Day).
CBYA member Pete Carrigan gave an excellent presentation on the supersonic Concorde aircraft on Monday 1st April 2019, at the Jávea Players Studio Theatre.
His fascinating talk on the Concorde, covered its unique and significant differences relative to all other aircraft, by means of an excellent Powerpoint presentation, with embedded video clips. Pete was a flight engineer 3rd pilot, and flew for 28 years for British Airways. He accumulated over 10,000 hours on 747s over 15 years, and then over 3,500 hours over the next 12 years on Concorde, continuing to fly on this amazing supersonic passenger aircraft right up to its final flight. He was an instructor for the final 6 years of his career, and was responsible for training and checking the crew on Concorde, as well as flying the aircraft on test flights.
