Namibia – a flying and climbing adventure by Ashley Francis CPAGB

Visitors are most welcome - fee for the evening just £5. You can purchase tickets online at

A true travel adventure-of-a-lifetime telling the story of piloting a light aircraft over Southern Africa and Namibia to climb a mountain in the desert in 1990. No guidebooks, no backup and entirely on our own, not everything goes to plan!

Illustrated entirely using digitally restored slides shot on film. The first 20 mins covers how to digitise your old 35 mm images and use modern tools to bring them back to life.

A geophysicist and geostatistician by training, Ashley has over 30 years world-wide oil industry experience of exploration, development and production geophysics. He has lectured at the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa, at the University of Reading and at Imperial College.

There are a limited number of tickets still available to non-club members. Come and join us at The Phoenix Centre, 212 Newtown Rd, Newbury RG14 7EB. There is plenty of free parking available.
