***** Strikemaster for Newcastle *****
Last night it was revealed by Strikemaster Display UK that the BAC Strikemaster Mk82A piloted by Mark Petrie will once again be flying in the skies of Newcastle on the 6th August at the Newcastle Festival of Flight.
The Strikemaster made it’s debut in Newcastle in 2015 in a very impressive display followed by a pairs display with Rich Goodwin in the Pitts Special.
The Strikemaster is an armed version of the Jet Provost trainer aircraft, one of which displayed at Newcastle in 2014 and this Strikemaster is operated by the NWMAS. Mark Petrie is a former RAF pilot who also now flies the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with BA.
We look forward to seeing Mark, and his Strikemaster in Newcastle once again on the 6th August!
