On Saturday 26th March 2011 Barton Airfield is having a “Barton Airfield History Open day”. I will be speaking about “Gagarin the Pilot Cosmonaut” between 16:00 and 17:00. It is a free event but may have to pay £1.00 (all day) for the car park. Looking forward to this, did some of my initial flight training there, many, many years ago.
The venue is Melvin’s Café Bar adjacent to the car park at Barton air field just 5 miles from Manchester City Centre. If you are in the area – stop by.
