Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 26 March this year. If you’re looking for present ideas, we’d be very grateful if you’d consider buying a Club membership pack. The pack makes a great gift, it provides the first year’s membership for the Club and you’ll be directly supporting the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) by purchasing one.
This month, one member of the RAF Memorial Flight Club will win a family ticket to The Scramble Experience at the National Memorial to the Few, Capel-le-Ferne, Kent.
How to enter the ballot
All current members of the RAF Memorial Flight Club have been automatically entered into this month’s ballot. If you’re not already a member, please join the Club before 28 February 2017.

Regular and long-term readers of these newsletters who know of veteran Spitfire pilot and great friend of the BBMF, Tony Cooper, will be saddened to hear that he passed away peacefully on 26th January, aged 100, in the residential care home where he had been living for the past year. He missed his 101st birthday by 11 days.
