me thinks an Aeroscale day out should be arranged - any takers for a meet at one of the shows? Duxford on the 7th July sound good to anyone?

sunny days and blue skys



I remember my first visit to Fairford many years ago. It had been a month in Belgium of very high temperatures and yes, clear blue sky.

When crossing the channel it started to rain.

It stopped raining 5 days later, while we were crossing the channel again, going back to Belgium. :-)

During those 5 days, we have been sleeping (with 5 people) in our car, because the camping area had been turned into a swamp.

At the airshow, the Red arrows did not perform, just did a few low level flights, the bookstores in the many tents were closed becasue books could not stand the water,...

It looked more like a swimming pool conference than an airshow all togehter

Still, we had a great time
