To Clip Their Wings Would Be a Crime

Here they are: the winged masterpieces it's our privilege to care for. More than thirty of them. They're not museum pieces, standing polished, preserved but dead, behind rope barriers. They're alive and moving.

People around Newquay know the drill: If you hear the gravel rasp of a vintage engine or the whine of an early jet, look up. That classic wing silhouetted against the sky is the reason we work so hard to keep 'em flying.

And it's thanks to you we can keep doing it.
