At our last Wellington Branch meeting on Thursday 23 June Wellington Gliding members Brian Sharpe and Tim Tarbottom gave us a presentation on the youth directed activities presently being promoted by the club at it new operations facility located at Greytown in the Wairarapa. Read about Brian and Tim's presentation in the newsletter.
This month Rick Bulger will relate to us his experience initially flying the Sunderland and followed by some of the piloting aspects of flying close action Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) flying the Orion. This will definitely be of interest to young and old.

Rick Bulger gave an enlightening presentation on the Short Sunderland. With the interest of a good audience Rick covered his time in the RNZAF as a General Duties Officer (Pilot) on the Sunderland but only briefly touched on the Orion. Rick has volunteered to come back later this year with details on the Orion and some of the piloting aspects of flying close action Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW).
