A loft that has been consistently at the top of National results and amassed the phenomenal total of eight National wins along with over thirty-five section wins is husband and wife partnership Mel and Sue King. They live in Blandford Forum, a market town in the northern district of Dorset, close to the river Stour and have flown at this address for the past 35 years. While I was aware of their previous successes, I had never been given the opportunity to visit, so I was thrilled when I received the call to go and report on their latest National Flying Club win from Coutances, the first race point of the season, which is situated on the Cherbourg peninsular in France.
