A model aircraft flying club has paid tribute to its leader, who has died.
Wharfedale Aeromodellers observed a two-minute silence at the start of its January meeting in memory of honorary president, John Horton.
Mr Horton, 75, a Burley-in-Wharfedale resident, was a founder member of the club at its inception in 1956 and served as its chairman for half a century, before becoming honorary president.
A man of many talents, ranging from historic machinery to ornithology, he also served on Burley Community Council.
