We have been contacted  by Nick Harrison who found our NBR website and wondered " whether any of your members would be able to help me with my research. In 1909 Messrs Grose & Feary built a monoplane in our village using NBR rubberised cloth."

Nick has a web site http://www.oakingtonplane.co.uk please go there to see the project --it is very well presented and if anyone can help with information please contact the editornbrinklies@aol.com
