The Special Relationship - the UK and the USA

Bill Henry welcomed by Tony Cowan
The Special Relationship
Many of us, particularly those who have served in the military, will recognise the ‘special relationship’ that binds our two great countries, the UK and the USA, together.  Particularly as we remember the liberation of Europe and the D-Day landings that took place 70 years ago in Normandy, France. This ‘special relationship’ also extends to the Civil Air Patrol in both countries. One of the UK CAP’s most recent recruits is Bill Henry who is also a member of The US CAP Mississippi Wing.  Bill is resident in the UK this summer and he will now pursue his CAP activities on this side of the ‘pond’.  The attached photograph shows Bill being welcomed on board the UK CAP by the Chairman, Tony Cowan at Aero Expo, one of the UK’s premier aviation events.
