PHLYING A PHANTOM – A Day in the Life of a Phantom Pilot in the Cold War


Mike Bettell, a Little Bealings resident, had a glittering career in the RAF. He started flying Lightnings at RAF Wattisham in the late 60s and then converted to Phantoms for much of the Cold War. Later in his career, Mike held several important roles – including commanding RAF Waddington – culminating in his appointment as ADC to Her Majesty the Queen. He will share his experience of dramatic air exploits, including several stand-offs with Soviet bloc aircraft.

Entrance and refreshments are FREE!

There will be a retiring collection with a suggested donation of £5 per head In aid of the Little Bealings Church Roof Repair Fund.
