North east flyer and Contest Secretary, Brian Martin, has died. Brian flew power models in all forms from the 50s to the late 70s, before switching to rubber, going on to feature in the British F1B team on several occasions. Brian didn't miss a single free flight contest season in over 50 years, before stepping down from competition in 2012. A small family funeral was held this week.
Brian sadly suffered with Alzheimer's and Dementia in his final years. If you'd like to donate towards Alzheimer's research, write your thoughts or upload pictures you might have of him, a web page has been set up in his memory.
