Pete Bailey (1947 - 2010)

F3F pilots are a close knit bunch, thanks to the wonderful sites we are privileged to fly from, and the shared experience of competition. So it's always a keenly felt loss when we lose a pilot.

Pete Bailey is the latest to leave us, after succumbing to illness all too soon after his retirement. Pete was an interesting and compassionate man with firmly held views. He was also a determined competitor, and I always enjoyed his company at the many events we attended.
