Fly-by marks 60th anniversary celebrations

Posted Wed 6th August 2008 at 09:00

THREE Aurigny planes took part in a fly-by to mark Alderney Week's 60th anniversary on Monday.

A trio of Trislanders flew over The Butes at 3.25pm, shortly after the Cavalcade Parade ? Alderney Week's flagship event ? was held.

Alderney Week organiser Ilona Soane-Sands described the fly-by as 'tremendous'.

Mrs Soane-Sands said: 'It was a tremendous event that all the thousands of people who were here will never forget.

'Getting it organised wasn't easy as we had to get a commercial airline to perform something they don't usually do.

'However, they did a magnificent job, so it was well worth all the effort.'

Holidaymaker Paul Steel was thrilled to see the planes.

Mr Steel, from West Yorkshire, said: 'It was a privilege to see the planes.

'Everyone got really excited when the announcement about a big surprise was made. The fly-by was well worth the wait.'

Anthony Adams, from Dorset, said: 'The planes provided a superb spectacle ? I'm delighted I was here to see them.'

Alderney Week runs until 10 August. Visit www.alderneyweek.net to view a full programme of events.
