Helvellyn Mountain Landing - file size 6 MB - open

A four page article which appeared in the December 2016 edition of Aeroplane Monthly.
The feature followed from a suggestion put forward by Martin Cowburn to celebrate the 90th Anniversary.
The resultant article was in general a re-write from John Leeming's book 'Airdays', and incorporated
extracts from newspaper reports of the time. The narrative gives a flavour of the heroic
nature of the flight, made at a time when light aviation was in its infancy.

John Leeming, a prime mover in at the birth of general aviation and a founding father
of the Nation's aero club movement we know today, is often overlooked by historians,
due to their lack of knowledge and limited research into his life-time achievements.
