After more than 15 years at the helm of Flight 8, Captain Mike Shaw has decided to retire.
In a recent message to the flight members he explained his decision:
I have decided that since I expect to be travelling most of next winter, I should resign as Captain of Flight 8 effective the end of April 2015. It's been a pleasure and I have enjoyed all of your company over the years. I hope someone will step forward and assume this position, I still want to attend meetings when able.
Anyone interested in taking over the running of Flight 8 should contact Mike Shaw to put their name forward.
