Yorkshire flypast

THE Yorkshire farm of NFU deputy president Tony Pexton was the setting for a Remem-brance Day flypast for veterans, to be shown on Sundays BBC Countryfile programme.

Part of Mr Pextons farm at Driffield, N Yorkshire, is on the site of the former RAF Hutton Crans-wick base which stationed fighter planes during World War II. The day was marked by a flypast of a Spitfire and a Lancaster bomber.
