Hi just wondered if anyone has any information on the Archon SF/1 - it looks amazing and apparently was shown at Sywell in 2016. Any builders out there?

Re: Captain Eric (Winkle) Brown

Thank you Gerry for letting everyone outside the area know about this. I was aware of some of his exploits but never imagined just how great his achievements had been. A truly fantastic aviator, the likes of which our world will never see again. Blue skies.

Think you might find it's because Leeming is being ramped up to be the busiest training base in the Country with the North Yorks Moors and the Vale of York no-go areas for GA. Hate to say this, but think it's a done deal.
