Lee Flying Association and the Solent Airport D-Day 75 Event

In this video I explain the role played by the Lee Flying Association in the D-Day 75 celebrations held at Solent Airport on the weekend of June 8th and 9th 2019.

From the outset the Lee Flying Association members were keen to participate in the organisation of this special event.

The LFA had been instrumental in the success of the 70th anniversary of D-Day in 2014, so they offered their services to Fareham Borough Council, the organisers of the 2019 event.

Solent Airport, formerly HMS Daedalus, was a hive of activity during the preparations for Operation Overlord.

It was the most active airfield on the south coast with well over 400 aircraft movements on D-Day itself.

With 10 Squadrons based at the airfield its runways launched Spitfires, Seafires, Mustangs, and Typhoons, flown by pilots from the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Air Force, the Royal Canadian Air Force, and the US Navy.

On June 3rd, 2019, three directors from the Lee Flying Association, Terry Combes, David Pinhorne, and Jock Thompson, met veteran and current paratroopers who arrived on a Brittany Ferry at Portsmouth ferry terminal en route to Duxford airfield in Cambridgeshire.

At Duxford the Paras boarded Dakota aircraft which transported them over the Channel to take part in the Daks Over Normandy event.

Meanwhile, on the following weekend, the LFA ran a stall at the Solent Airport event.

The LFA stall proved very popular, and many people were informed of the LFA and the work it has done and continues to do for the airfield.

Just as in 1944, weather played a crucial part in the proceedings.

The strong winds of Saturday 8th June meant that many of the planned air displays had to be cancelled.

However, a flying display by a gyrocopter pilot demonstrated the resilience and maneuverability of these aircraft.

Spectators were also treated to an air display by a Griffon engined Mk XIV Spitfire, registration G-SPIT.

And later on the Saturday there were further displays by two vintage Army helicopters.

Earlier, the Red Arrows took time out of their busy schedule to fly past the airfield, leaving red, white, and blue trails.

On the Sunday the weather was much better so the entire schedule of flying displays was completed, which included the Great War Display Team.

So all in all it was another successful commemoration of the events of early June 1944 and the Lee Flying Association members were very glad to have taken part.

Lee Flying Association (LFA) is a not-for-profit members organisation that works to ensure the retention of Solent Airport for public aviation and community uses.

And you can be part of this association and enjoy the many benefits of membership.

Whether you’re a pilot, aircraft owner, or someone who is just interested in aviation or even just the history of the airfield you are welcome to join the LFA.

TR-3A Black Manta, TR-3B Astra – Fresh Black Triangle Sightings

TR-3A Black Manta, TR-3B Astra – Fresh Black Triangle Sightings

This video is a supplement to one I made in early January, 2019.

That video was entitled “TR-3A Black Manta, TR-3B Astra – What are these black triangles”, and it proved to be very popular.

It seems this subject is of great interest so I thought I would review any additional information that’s come to light in the past few months.

According to MUFON (and posts in social media) sightings of black triangles continue to startle witnesses.

For example, if we take a sample from the MUFON database it shows that between 1st January and 30th April 2018 there were 69 UFO sighting submissions categorised as black triangles, from witnesses in the USA.

And there were 5 such submissions for sightings in the UK.

In some cases the actual sightings occurred several months or even years earlier but they were submitted to MUFON in the first quarter of 2018.

During the same period a year later, 1st January to 30th April 2019, there were 53 submissions from the USA and 6 for sightings in the UK.

Most do not include any photographic or video evidence, though some do, and there are also a few drawings.

The few video clips available show some interesting footage.

However, without the additional evidence and corroboration from other independent witnesses, it seems this type of footage will remain just an intriguing enigma.

Some may be genuine and some may be hoaxes. I don’t know which are which. Do you? Express your opinion by posting a comment below.
