Catton Hall Fly-in 2001

The 2001 fly-in was held in perfect hot weather with light winds along the runway. The Garden Party atmosphere was maintained by the traditional break for a glass of wine and slice of apple pie. It was a most perfect flying day. Some photographs can be seen below indicating the good attendance.
