North Weald flying competition in memory of pilot Andrew Sully


Fellow pilots, friends and plane enthusiasts gathered at North Weald Airfield today in memory of Andrew Sully, who died in a plane crash near Writtle earlier this year. 

The annual Spot Landing competition, organized by the Squadron, was dedicated to the memory of the Gulf War veteran and father-of-three from Writtle.

The competition involves pilots attempting to land as close as possible to a line on the runway, showing off skill and aircraft control.

Mark Carter, who has flown from the Squadron for ten years, said: “Andy was well liked here at the airfield and he was a great pilot.

“He flew RAF Hercules and had loads of flying experience, it was a very tragic accident.

“The competition in his memory is a great way to remember him, he loved flying and he would not want us stop.”
