Chris Martyr

Yesterday, Deanland pilots were given the sad news that Chris had died of lung cancer on Saturday.
From the Flyer forum https://forums.flyer.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=115487

I only met Chris once in person, but we had some good banter over forums. A sad loss :cry:

As long as the enclosure is all Class G airspace and has cake and bacon butty feeding stations, that will be OK by me :D

Re: gps overlay

I used to use Garmins MapSource to add content. I still have an eTrex Summit (b/w version) kicking around somewhere.
