Guildford Lions Club’s next illustrated Zoom talk as a charity fundraising event is a two-parter at 7.30pm on Wednesdays, November 18 and December 16.

Titled Chasing Bears in a Phantom, it will be by retired local RAF squadron leader and Virgin Atlantic Airways pilot Nick Anderson.

Now retired Nick Anderson was an RAF squadron leader and later a pilot for Virgin Atlantic Airways.

Nick will be describing his experiences during the 1970s Cold War era of flying fully armed Phantom jet fighters tasked with intercepting Soviet Tu95 Bear Bombers which were constantly penetrating NATO’s airspace.

After 19 years with the RAF Nick became a commercial pilot with Virgin Atlantic Airways for 25 years. He now lectures to aviation groups and co-hosts weekly podcasts on aviation themes.

The cost is £5 for a Zoom link per a talk.

Like other charities, Guildford Lions Club cannot run its usual fundraising events. Therefore, it is seeking other fun ways to provide some great entertainment while raising a few pounds to support local people in need.

 If you wish to receive the Zoom link(s) to Nick’s first or both talks you can either pay £5 (or £10 for both talks) by PayPal at 

Or reply to and details of payment by either bank transfer or by cheque will be sent to you by return.

You will be sent the Zoom link(s) 24 hours before the talk.  If you do not already have access to Zoom please download the app by visiting prior to the talk.

Further Zoom talks will be arranged for the new year.
