We are pleased to be back in our home village of Queensbury to perform our traditional Summer Proms in Holy Trinity Church.
It is with regret that I have had to cancel a fly past for the Queensbury 1940’s Day that I had arranged for Saturday 23rd June 2018 as this was the date set by the old committee in August 2017.
Since then the newly elected committee (In October 2017).decided to alter the event to take place on Sunday 24th June 2018 and changed the venue to Black Dyke Mills, which has been changed yet again to an event taking place in the Conservative Club on Sunday 24th June.
The notification from the RAF is below:
I am writing to confirm your slot time on the 23-Jun-18 for your flypast Queensbury, Yorkshire. You have been allocated a Spitfire which will be flying over @1314L, one of our pilots will contact you around 3 days prior to the event to address any weather, aircraft serviceability or timing changes.
