We don’t have a TV at the Obs (or a day off today), so the royal wedding has largely passed us by. Whilst I’m sure everyone here wishes the couple all the best for their big day it didn’t seem particularly relevant to Fair Isle until I found out that the pilot of the lead Typhoon in the flypast is none other than Roddy Dennis, son of FIBO Trust President Roy Dennis. Roy is also an ex-warden of FIBO and Roddy was a baby at the Obs, so maybe we will have to tune in to watch the ceremony after all!
