EXPLORER'S GIN

"Pilots take no special joy in walking. Pilots like flying, it's the ultimate adventure."

Neil Armstrong

IMAGES FROM DDAY MEMORIAL FLIGHT

"The flight was the most fantastic hour and 50 minutes of flying from Duxford to Colchester to Southend to Maidstone. Over Beachy Head there were thousands of people watching across the Channel in formation with 20 other Dakotas with Mustangs flying around and Spitfires. We crossed the coast of France and the jumping aircraft peeled off with people jumping out including veterans all desperate to land in the same field they landed in 75 years earlier. The planes landed in Caen where I found the French were so welcoming. We had a brilliant end to the day with a glass of Explorer’s Gin.”
