http://westernappliancerepairboise.com/appliance-types/ The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 14th May was Ian Gee from the Lakes Flying Company Ltd., who gave a fascinating presentation entitled ‘Airplanes on Windermere. 

He detailed the life of one of Kendal’s unsung heroes, Edward Wakefield who was a true pioneer in the field of hydro-airplanes. Edward, a one-time Mayor of Kendal, helped in the development of airplanes which could take off and land on water when, at that time, people thought it was impossible. 

Currently a replica of Wakefield’s first plane ,’Waterbird’, is being built and has successfully taken off and flown  from land with a water take off coming soon.
