March 9th was overcast & really warm.
Tonight at the Egmont Modellers Monthly meeting we recognized one of our own with Life Membership.
Mike O'Grady Esq and his Co-pilot in life Ann are leaving us in the next few months on there move North to be closer to family.
Mike has been a stalwart of the EM team and Club Captain.
He is a great instructor and go to guy for all sorts of things concerning Modelling and has a great knowledge of aviation. Mike was in Ag Aviation for a good part of his working life with Robertson Airservices etc and also his time with 436 Model Shop.
A great ambassador for Model Aviation and aviation in general and a good friend of Stratford Aerodrome as a whole. The place will certainly be a tad different as Mike said 30 years of great memories Flying of the Aerodrome.
Always welcome Mike and Ann.
