Yesterday friend and resident of Old Sarum Airfield, Peter Borchert, took his beautiful Super Pitts on her maiden flight.
Built over the past 5 and a half years in his home garage, and later here at Old Sarum, the only box left to be ticked on the home build was to get it up in the air and flying. Watched from the ground by wife Sandy and daughter Chelsea, amongst many others, the Pitts flew beautifully, with quite a magnificent noise too! No doubt this will be the beginning of many flights from Old Sarum and we certainly look forward to seeing both Peter and his Super Pitts in the air more often.
Huge congratulations to Peter and the family for this massive and long awaited final achievement – we certainly hope you celebrated in an appropriate fashion!
