Dear All
First off, I hope you had a merry Christmas and I would Like to wish you
all a happy new year. I would like to thank all those who supported my
events last year, I do appreciate your support.

I am pleased to announce that we will be holding

A 78th anniversary of the Battle of Britain
and  the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, model aircraft event.
This date is the closest I could get to November the 11th.

The event will be an any Scale/Warbird/Jet meet at Tibenham Airfield
on Friday the 28th of September 2018.
Scale Aerobatic will also be welcome, scale foamies are also welcome.

It would be really nice if we could get a good WW1 turnout,
something on the lines of the dwarf patrol

By kind permission of the Norfolk Gliding Club

Three (smooth) tarmac runways in various directions


Pilots TBA
Spectators suggested donation £2

A one minute silence will be held at midday for the fallen from all sides.
Hopefully the remembrance ceremony will once again be conducted
by Dave Welsh and the 'Spirit of Coltishall Association'

Proof of BMFA or LMA insurance will need to be provided on the day.

Food, Drink,  Bar and Toilet facilities are available at the club house.
The Battle of Britain Ball will be held in the Clubhouse in the evening.

Caravan and camping facilities are available at Tibenham airfield.
Thank you.

Dear All
Just three weeks to go now until this event.
Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and we will get a good turnout.

Where does the time go?
As always our models are not ready.

The Lightning is still under repair, after it decided to
throw it's self off of the table while being assembled for the last meet.

The 190 is under repair after the dick on the stick ballsed the landing up.

The Camel is awaiting the engine to be fitted.

Apart from that everything is spiffing.
I do like a person who leads from the front.  :-X

And as always I am trying to get something to fly over.

Dear All
Just two weeks to go now.
I have made some progress on the repairs of the Lightning
and FW190 and hopefully I will get the engine in the Camel tomorrow.

Hopefully all members from the Black Sheep Squadron who are attending
this event have their models ready and are rearing to go.  :af

Let's hope Mudders (Black Jazz) Black One has got a good routine
worked out for us.  :uk:

Dear All
It must be getting close now as I am starting to get a twitch (steady)  ;D

I am struggling to have the Camel ready for the Black Sheep Squadron's first outing.

Does anyone have a WW1 model (60 inch ish upto 1/4 scale ish) which
they would consider lending or selling to me please.

As I would really like to be part of the act so to speak.
I know I have had plenty of time to sort something out
so it is my own fault. I think I am like a lot of modellers
I some times have a lapse of enthusiasm.

I was thinking 1pm for the first official flight of the Black Sheep Squadron,
that should give everyone who is taking part a good chance to be ready.

Regards Phil G.

Dear All
Once again this year Dave Welsh, two standard  bearers
and a trumpeter from the 'Spirit of Coltishall association' will conduct
the remembrance ceremony for us. Unfortunately I was unable to
secure the services of a piper.

It is with great sadness that I have to write these words yet again.
Long term supporter of my events both at Coltishall and Tibenham,
Bob Payne lost his battle with cancer last Saturday and as usual
he was one of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet.

That is the sixth person we have lost in a little over two years.

Fly on my friend where ever you are.

Regards Phil Goff

Dear All
I received word by carrier pigeon from Captain Manwaring
the Black Sheep Squadron C.O. last night.

Apparently the C.O. has made an almighty cock up.  :-X
He booked leave when of course he should be
leading the BSS into battle for the first time on Friday.  ;D

However all is not lost as his 5 star holiday resort is not far from
Tibenham. So at least he is going to grace us with his presence
and probably give the Squadron a pep talk before heading off for
a slap up lunch.  :''

As was the case with most C.O.'s and Generals during WW1
he will be leading from the rear, normally about 35 miles at the rear.  :uk:

Before anyone gives me a history lesson.
This is written in jest and is not meant to demean those
who fought so bravely. Lions led by Donkeys.

Regards Phil G.

However do you think the elite BSS will need any.  ;D

We only have the best in the BSS.  :)

Dear All
After about three years plus of being grounded
the Jaguar is coming out to play at this event.

The Lightning damage is more severe than first thought
after it decided to throw it's self off the table.

So after 13 years of service the Lightning is going
to get a new set of wings, canopy and fin as well as
a repaint.

At this stage in the past we used to get threats from the Northern
hordes Von JoLLy and his little gang the Doncaster dog fighters.  :nananana:

However they were easy prey for Coltishall's magnificent 242 Squadron.

That has just reminded me, I shall be flying for the away team on a
couple of occasions, with the DR1 and the FW190.  :-X

Counting the time down with stupid posts.  :)

Dear All
I arrived back from Tibenham about 2 hours a go,
the Lanc is in the hangar with that pugnacious look on
it's face.
The Jaguar is loaded in Tony C's car and the Fw190,
foamie Se5A and Hurricane are in our car. So we are all set.

The weather forecast is good with the wind down the 03 runway.
The wind is coming from the N.E. so it will feel chilly with a high of 15 degrees.

I am looking forward to the first official outing of the Black Sheep Squadron.
We must have the now legendary Tibenham 'Balbo'. Oh hell with it let's have two.

Let's hope we get a good turnout.

I would like to thank all those who made the effort
to attend this humble event last Friday.
I really enjoyed the day although it was quite cold at times.

I think everyone who was there on Friday would agree
what a magnificent display the fledgling BSS put on.

The Spirit of Coltishall Association

If I have missed anyone out, I do appreciate what you do for me.

Yes Alan I agree, if it had been you or I flying the DVIII the prop
would have broken.

All round good chap Andrew T. has invited the BSS to his magnificent grass
site at Binham in Norfolk, some time next year. What an extraordinary kind gesture.
A gesture I think we should take up. Caravan /Camping would be allowed from Friday
to Monday.

Excellent pics Kev. Thank you very much.

Thank you all once again for your much appreciated support.

Regards Phil Goff.

Charles,
Thanks for posting that. As usual from Pete,
a really nice video. I will have to get the C.O.
to adjudicate on that as there looks like there
are far more Dibbles than I first thought.

The safe landing zone is the width of the runway
that we park on, anything long or short of that
constitutes a 'Dibble'.

This is going to change the look of the leader board.

It was still however an excellent inaugural flight from the
Black Sheep Squadron.

Regards Phil G.
