First Solo

I came across this rather nice picture of G-ATUB which I flew for my first solo flight in July 1977 at Wycombe Air Park. Gordon Parkin was my instructor, ex Hurricane pilot, very patient and very modest. Later on I flew with Joan Hughes on an instructor course, what a lucky boy I was to fly with these legends. I see G-ATUB has lasted rather well and is still flying, not too sure where she is based.
