This was a fascinating talk, adding a human element to the accident, which some of the audience remembered. If you get chance to hear Jim's talk don't miss it.
Thank you Jim for a very informative evening.
This took place in Feniton Church 7:30 pm on Thursday 21st April on behalf of Feniton History Group.
Jim Rider's new book 'Mayday in July' has been published by the Ottery St Mary Heritage Society and is now available from the Curious Otter Bookshop in Ottery St Mary (price £7.95). It is also available on line from Amazon. The book tells the story of the last flight of a Viscount airliner, G-ARBY, which landed in a farmer's field south of Ottery St Mary in July 1980. All sixty two people on board walked away and there were no injuries. It is a remarkable local story and has never been fully told before.
