Valley Aviation

V-A-S 2015 Photo Competition

I would like to say well done and thank you to all the winners and V-A-S members for entering the 2015 V-A-S Photo Competition.

Once again after a very successful and packed VAS Photo Competition meeting (29th March 2016) we have added the winning entrees to our website for members that could not make it to the meeting.

The level of quality in entrees it is getting better each year, with more and more members taking part to have their photos displayed at RAF Valley and have them viewed by all RAF personnel which also pick the winning photos for each category.

If you would like to take part in the 2016 VAS Photo Competition, contact me (Jim LeCras) for further information. Details can be found on the about us page.

Could you please enclose a SAE (self addressed envelope with stamp) if you wish to have your photos returned to you through the Royal Mail.
