Here's some of the nights pictures together with some of the photographs from this years "Extreme" entry that received a commendation.
Take Flight Aviation members have been involved in dozens of entries and Nick and Mike have collected no less than five Guinness World Records in the process. Once again there was a good Take Flight Aviation presence along with some old faces as well as Bob and Jackie Shuttleworth and Michael James who received a commendation for his first entry into the competition that also doubled as his commercial cross country qualifier whilst Nick and Mike went Extreme! North, South, East, West. Longest, Shortest, Highest, Lowest, Newest, Oldest airports, which you can check out mixed in with the event pictures below.
After the ceremony the late night team took to the skies once again but this time with no aircraft, taking in London's sky-line at the Sky Bar for the typical Take Flight after party. You can check out the latest video for Mike & Nick's 2023 challenge here.
