Come fly with me

A FORMER Red Arrow pilot from Hitchin who performs at air shows across the country is giving the opportunity for an aviation enthusiast to join him on an aerobatic flight.

Dave Slow, who was born in Hitchin, now flies for display team The Blades, a job which takes him up and down the country.

As part of a special competition by the RAF, he will take out a fan on a special flight. The winner will also have the chance to fly a helicopter and watch a private air display by the team.

The opportunity is part of a campaign which sends phone cards to troops serving abroad so that they have more time to speak to their loved ones back home.

“The Wings Appeal helps so many RAF families and we are delighted to support such a fantastic fundraising campaign,” said Dave.

For a chance to win, text the word WINGS to 70007. Texts cost �2 per text, plus a standard network message charge, with at least �1.54 from each donation going to the RAF Association depending on the network operator.
