The UK Freestyle Masters
Just back after clearing a mountain of cans, bottles and other stuff from an amazing weekend for Langar. Talk about partying hard and flying hard… I was simply an observer and I’m knackered. Lovely people and very professional attitude from all concerned. So proud of our (shared) juniors who flew so well and took the banter thrown at them so well. Sorry to poor old (young) Luke Oliver for picking him out of the hat for first flight. That must have been daunting. A quick thanks to sponsors here, I will write about those in more detail later, but for now, thank you to : Nexus Models Nexus Bob, Global RC Paul Clarke, AZ Aerosports Azza Stephens, Michael Donnelly MWM Warbirds, Propguy Jeti UK Bernie Jones and just hope I’m not missing someone.

Mick Oakey, Managing Editor, The Aviation Historian
The son of an RAF wing commander pilot and an American Overseas Airways stewardess, Mick has been involved in aviation since early childhood in the 1960s.
After a year as a Ministry of Defence Student Engineer at RAE Farnborough and Bedford in 1979–80, he went to Imperial College, London, to study aero-engineering; but his passion for the history and romance of aeronautics led him to change direction and become a junior curator at the Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon. Two years later he joined Aeroplane, and in 1998 he became Editor, a post he held until he retired in 2010, after 28 years on the magazine. In 2012 he and three partners launched The Aviation Historian, a new independent quarterly, of which he is Managing Editor.
He is a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Historical Group Committee, and in 2011 he received the Air League’s prestigious Scott-Farnie Medal from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in recognition of his work onAeroplane. On the odd occasions when he is not absorbed in aviation history, he is absorbed in Egyptology and ancient technology, and carves stone replicas of Ancient Egyptian tomb and temple scenes.
