On our approach to land at Dunkerswell airfield in Devon, we had flown down from a grass airstrip in Somerset to refuel. I had become friendly with a former Royal Air Force pilot who owned this historic Auster. It was built in the late 1930's and saw service during the 2nd World War. I was only visiting to look at the Auster and a few other aircraft kept at the airfield but as it needed fuel Mike asked me if I would like to accompany him, and I jumped at the opportunity. This was doubly a pleasure as not only had I never had the experience of flying in a light aircraft, but also it was multiplied with the fact that my dear departed Father had flown in an Auster while he was in the RAF during the 2nd World War. Even more amazing during the flight back to Somerset Mike gave me the opportunity to fly the aircraft for a while, something I was absolutely blown away by.
