It is with great sadness that we have to advise of the passing of another great aeromodeller, John Shaw. John died at home late last week of a suspected heart attack.
Although best known to BARCS members as a former president and a member of the famous FACCT, John’s interests covered a wide range from Control Line Team Racing, through Soaring and more recently to Indoor Free Flight. He was responsible for the running of events at Frogsnest and Islip and the BMFA South Midlands Championships run to this day.
No doubt many members will have fond memories and possibly photos of John and we would encourage you to share these so we might record his aeromodelling career in more detail. We would like to post a fuller history and possibly use this as a basis of an article for the BMFA News.
Below are a few words from a couple of fellow flyers.
As soon as we have further information we will advise of any funeral arrangements. A minutes silence will be held at the briefing of the F3J event at Radioglide on Sunday26th May.
