I would look forward to seeing his latest comedy creation, e.g. 'The Belgian Trainer' of a few years ago. He was a big part of the friat experience and will be greatly missed.

In the FRIAT members area on the RIAT website their is a post about Peter Hardy, it states there will be a book of remembrance for anyone who wants to pay their respects
Many FRIAT members' will remember Pete Hardy who volunteered in the enclosure for many years. It is with regret that he will not be with us this year.

In memory of Pete we will have a book of remembrance placed in the marquee for those of you that new him and wish to leave a message.

This will be passed onto Pete's family after the show.

I am sure many of you will have photo's of Pete in one of his many magnificent flying machines. If you would like to bring copies of these along with you they will be put up in the marquee over the weekend. These will also be handed to his family after the show.

Pete's wife Ruth has never been to RIAT as this was seen as Pete's time. Ruth will be coming to the show this year and will be visiting the enclosure on the Saturday to see the FRIAT experience first hand.
