Newark Air Museums Hastings and Shackleton Anniversary Weekend provided the necessary excuse for the first outing of ‘The Astrovan’. East Midland’s DP and GANG’s GP waited until the traffic had died down on Friday evening before venturing out for the first time without encountering any problems on the way. During the weekend DP was able to instruct visitors in the intricacies of our RAF MkIX and our Smiths Mk2C sextants along with our Astro Compass MkII, while GP quizzed them with his ‘Spot the Airfield Competition. Meanwhile JGP made a sizeable amount towards our youth engagement activities from her tombola stall.
