This year we were so lucky to have such gorgeous weather for running the RAFARS Airfields on the Air special event. Contatcts ranged from Eire, Northern Ireland and Scotland in the north and the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Switzerland to the East.

A fantastic time was had by all both as a radio event and as a social & training opportunity. We will definitely be back again next year come rain or shine.

Per Ardua Ad Astra !
