Hi all
Thank you all for your support this year so far. We have had some successful indoor meetings early in the year and now three trips out .
First to Newark,a good had had by all and my highlight was being able to climb into the cockpit of the Vulcan and had a fifteen minute talk from an x pilot as well.
Our second trip last month was the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford which gave us a rare look inside quite a secretive company who really welcomed us. And with the added bonus of some flying on the airfield as well .
Yesterday we had a trip to the Shuttleworth Collection and even though temperatures outside reached 38c we managed a full guided tour with a nice cool down afterwards either in our cars or the air conditioned part of the dinning room.
August is a month we have a rest or go on holiday or look after grandchildren so no meetings for us.
September trip out is to RAF Scampton, maybe for the last time as we do not know it the Heritage centre will survive after Scampton closure. If you want to go and have not given me your name there is still time if you let me know ASAP. You will also have to let me know if you are coming as a passenger or be sure to give me your make model and reg no of car so I can inform Scampton.
Attached to this email are some pictures from Shuttleworth and the write up for this months newsletter.
Hope to see you at Wake House for our October meeting.
thanks
John
