Colleagues from 750 Squadron, RNAS Culdrose gathered last week to say farewell to Roger McDonald on his retirement. Roger has been with Ascent since the beginning of UKMFTS at Culdrose in 2011, having previously flown at 750 Squadron as a civilian and prior to that whilst serving in the Royal Navy.
In a career spanning several decades he has flown many types of aircraft including both fixed wing and rotary in the military, and Police Air Service; accruing in excess of 15,000 flying hours.
At the end of his final flight on 750 Squadron, Roger was greeted with a line-up from the runway into a celebratory champagne reception.
We wish Roger every happiness for the future.
