Ron Muncaster's Pride And Joy Takes To The Air


And "Away"

Five years of determination, hard work and craftsmanship bore fruit for Nelsonian Ron Muncaster, recently. His heart was probably in his mouth as he watched the results of all that effort, a tiny Turbulent aircraft, powered by a 1200cc V.W. motor, trundle down the airfield and lift into the air. At the controls was experienced Turbulent pilot Robert Trewavas. The inaugural flight was a complete success.
