Thanks for the video. Pleased to see Lee is busy with a good variety of visitors. Good to see the Dove is still flying and the Czech microlights were interesting as was the Vision jet.

Good to see the Dove, I didn’t know any were still flying. Are those stored Islanders in the background of the Aztec picture?

It’s the only Dove still flying in the U.K.

I believe there are still 1 or 2 in Germany.

They are indeed. Can't remember how many now, 7 maybe 8 stored.
