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.
