John makes and flies Fighters mostly
These little fighters need some finishing and then, after they have matured for a year or two,
they will be splendid flyers.

After seeing John flying fighters at Brighton, a lady called Bex asked if he and others
could fly Afghan fighters for a film she wanted to make. What a lovely opportunity!
- Mr Chapman came up with the kites and we flew them.
Here we are at the pub before we did some flying.
The film was a success and secured an MA for Bex
You can see a shortened version of the film on YouTube:
