I hope you will allow me a few degrees of Starboard Drift for a moment

A couple of pages back Brian, Smudge, TBT and I were talking about RAF Albert 'dropping' the Falcons and Red Devils. Well ... after an expedition to the loft, I found the following pics.

There was mention of the Red Devils BN-2 Islander ... Well here it is, G-AXDH, on the ground at the former Lympne Airfield Kent (just north of Dymchurch on the South Coast) taken in 1981 ... sadly the Airfield is no more

Just for good measure ... Here is a pic of Mrs Coff (April 1981), then aged 18, after her 3,000' Static Line Descent from G-AXDH with the Red Devils for Charity. No broken bones !!! We married three years later in the hope of preventing any further reckless behaviour
