The mills of FAD

posted in: Pictures 0

The Mills of FAD may grind slowly but they do grind exceedingly fine and sooner or later we seem to get a reaction to everything we publish. In this case the reaction to Frank Beeton’s memories of 1950s aviation highlights took 14 years to arrive after publication. Frank wrote of the visit to Durban of three Avro Lancaster aircraft of the French Aeronavale (Fleet Air Arm) and this year reader Gerald Maddams recalled seeing pictures in FlyPast Magazine of those very same aircraft at Louis Botha Airport during their visit. It turned out the pictures had been taken by Vic Pierson and contributing editor Ken Ellis was kind enough to forward copies and permission to reproduce them here.
