For the fourth successive year, the RAF Memorial Flight Official Club has been able to offer a fantastic ballot prize of a ‘money cannot buy it’, chance-of-a-lifetime Experience Day with the BBMF. Long-standing club member Anthony Andrews was this year’s lucky winner of the Experience Day prize. He was able to spend the day with the BBMF at the Flight’s home at RAF Coningsby on Saturday 29th June, Armed Forces Day. His guests, who shared the day with him, were his daughter Katrine, her husband Philip and their daughter Melissa. The group were allowed special access to the RAF Station at Coningsby and were hosted by former OC BBMF and your Club publications editor, Clive Rowley.
