This was a very important event for a very special BCD model – Jan Odeyn’s Grumman Guardian! This model has introduced many pilots to the art of carrier flying, and thoughout its long and sometimes painful life it’s been flown by an estimated one hundred people; to recognise this achievement, the Guardian was presented with the Concours d’Elegance prize for the meeting, making an elderly aeroplane very happy!
