Gladiator in the prizes

J G TFC

Gloster Gladiator II G-GLAD takes second place in the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation concours d’elegance at Goodwood Revival. Even after a through preparation by the boys and girls at TFC, and a flyaway crew to add show sparkle on arrival at Goodwood, we were narrowly beaten into the runner up spot by a superbly detailed Cessna 195 Business Liner. The competition attracts some of the best pre-1966 aircraft from the UK and Europe. The (other) star attraction was the Hiller UH-12E4 helicopter from the 007 movie ‘Goldfinger’ flown by Bond girl ‘Pussy Galore’ played by Honor Blackman.  The trophy was received on behalf of Stephen Grey by TFC Engineer Joe Kennedy who was presented with the award by Lady March.
