The eagle(s) have landed

Some people will do anything to avoid the traffic on the M40 and on Sunday some distinguished Chinese businessmen did just that by chartering two helicopters to bring them to The Swan for a spot of antiques shopping and afternoon tea. Clearance was obtained for the helicopters to land on the playing field adjacent to The Swan and an appreciative village audience gathered to watch them.  So for those of you who didn't know, it is possible to come to The Swan by helicopter. Just check with us that there isn't a cricket match going on before you fly.
