On Sunday we had the pleasure and privilege of spending the day with Sqn Ldr Kev Booth and his partner Joanne here at the centre.
Kev was part of the crew (flight engineer) that brought ZA148 – our stunning VC10, into Newquay in August 2013.
Having kept in touch with Kev, he kindly offered to come and see us and help us with questions, info, experiences and VC10 related things that would help us to pass on to visitors. In fact he did far more – many visitors on the day were lucky enough to sit and chat with Kev (who rightly occupied his old seat) and were able to chat and get the best tour ever.
Some of our own VC10 team, spent the day with Kev, and added some really helpful data to pass on to the tour guides.
Thanks also to Joanne – who chatted away with visitors all day and really helped make the day special – both for us and our visitors. “Well that was an unexpected bonus” was one comment from a visitor who visited with his son, as he walked back into the hangar after the tour.
So many, many thanks Kev and Jo. This was a great day for all involved and very much appreciated. See you again when we have the engines in too!
