HAM members at Brian’s funeral


“Brian vampire on display”

A group of Highbrook member and other notable New Zealand model flyers were at Brian Borlands funeral this afternoon  paying their respects to a fellow HAM member and one of the founders of the Roskill club. It was a great moving service / tribute. Our thoughts are with this family. Keep flying high Brian, you will be missed.
