RAF commander is new patron of Ulster Aviation Society
The Ulster Aviation Society has welcomed a high-ranking Royal Air Force officer to be its new patron.
Air Commodore Harvey Smyth from Banbridge, Co Down, who is the station commander at RAF Marham in Norfolk, said he was "incredibly honoured" to accept.
"I have consistently been amazed by the whole team's enthusiasm, professionalism and dedication toward protecting and promoting Northern Ireland's rich aviation heritage," he said.
Society chairman Ray Burrows said Air Commodore Smyth had been a tremendous friend to society members and a supporter of the Ulster Aviation Society.
