Tragic passing of another Springfield stalwart

We were shocked to hear that Lynn Bowen died whilst out on his motor bike, Sunday last. Lynn was one of the regulars during the golden years of Springfield and always there with soaring buddy Heinie. He also enjoyed flying his power Acro Wot at the Cato Manor club. Lynn had recently started his sloping again, after a visit to Volksies and some flying sessions with John. Never a cross word to anyone and a legendary proponent of the Russ Springfield inverted turn, which I used to watch in amazement but could never get my head around achieving. Lynn will be missed by all of us.
