Dear All
We always seem to be short of away team aircraft at this event.
So to try and pre empt that happening this year particularly
as it is the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain,
I thought I would post this early.

So is there anyone out there who has a 109 and is prepared
to bring it along to this event please?
Stuka, Heinkel HE111 and Do17 would be great as would Italian aircraft.

A bit of a long shot all of this but I feel I must at least try.

Dear Charlie
The 190 would be great.
I love all scale models particularly WW2.

As always Charlie, thank you for your help and support.

I must admit I like the look of the cambrian 109E 65 inch span
and with foam wings. I should be able to knock that up in short order.

The only trouble is I have got a new set of wings to make for the
EE Lightning after it threw it's self off the table at Tibenham last year.
Repair the YT 72 inch 190A after it went into failsafe last year.

Repair the Yellow aircraft Spit XIV (Best Spit I have ever flown)
I am not 100% sure what happend to that one. I think the engine
came lose/out. Steward Clifford offered to repair the fus for me FOC.
I might take him up on that.

Plus make a pair of wings for my 1/4 scale MR Spit.
I have been making that for about the last 15 years.

I have become the owner of a Top Flite 190 which is having a Saito 60 radial nailed onto the front.

Just hope i can finish it and fly it in good time  :xx

I could blow the dust off my Blackhorse FW.190 . This should give the Spitfires something to chase...  :ev

Brian,
Thank you very much.
As it is a major anniversary, it would be nice to
have aircraft from all sides.

We must remember those who gave so much,
but it is also meant to be a fun day for everyone.
After all that is what they fought so valiantly for.

Dear All
I received word from the RAF events team,
that unfortunately my bid for a flypast
has been unsuccessful.
