'The Dam Busters March', 'Ride of the Valkyries' or maybe the theme from 'Little House on the Prairie'; the choice is yours for which background music would have best suited the scenes that unfolded on Thursday afternoon but one thing is for sure . . . what an extraordinary airborne event we had.

As part of our Fathers' Day celebrations, dads, granddads and uncles were invited into school to help build flying machines with the children in school. We had around forty people join our classes to build kites, paper aeroplanes and even a rocket!

Then, at around half past two, our magnificent men (and women) with their flying machines moved on to the sun drenched field; where they were joined by another forty or so parents, and put their engineering and piloting skills to the test.

There was barely a portion of the field that wasn't filled with a kite towing individuals; grinning from ear to ear and screaming with laughter as they sped across the grass. The children had a pretty good time too!

As I looked across the vista of fun filled flying I could not help but comment . . . 'Why would you wish to be anywhere else?'
