On Wednesday, April 1, the members of the Probus Club and their wives visited the RAF Base at Lossiemouth.

Members were met on arrival by Flight Lieutenant Chester Myres who gave a rundown on the layout of the base and any security information required. They then went to the Officers’ Mess for refreshments.

From there, he escorted members on a bus tour of the whole airfield, explaining what each building was used for and then onto the Survival Equipment Section where they were given a demonstration on the use of the survival equipment which proved very interesting.

Members then returned to the Officers’ Mess where they sat down to a two-course lunch, followed by tea and coffee.

As this was the final day for Search and Rescue, before being handed over to Civilian Helicopters, members witnessed a fly pass by the RAF’s latest aeroplane.

After lunch, members visited the hangar of 6th Squadron and were given a talk on the latest aeroplane, the Typhoon.

The vote of thanks was given by Andrew West.

It was then time to leave for home and all had enjoyed a great day out.
