Dear All
I am pleased to announce that I have just received notification
from the Royal Air Force events team, informing me that we will
be receiving a flypast by the BBMF 'Lancaster'.

I have been trying/hoping to get a Lancaster flypast for years.
I am still shaking and I can't wait to see the mighty Lanc in action.

The Lanc to me is the most poignant of all the British WW2 aircraft.
Bomber Command lost 55,753 personnel during WW2.

Lest we forget.

Dear All
I received an email from Martin H. from Wiltshire today.
He has put his name down for this event with these electric models.

Anson
Twin Pioneer
Argosy

I think you might agree these models are fairly unique
and perfect for the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force event.

I look forward to meeting Martin and seeing his unique models in action.
Below are some pictures of the models.

Regards Phil G.

  • You are never too old to storm a bouncy castle
I think that the Beverly is more like an AW Argosy, but very nice all the same

Stukno,
You are absolutely correct it is an Argosy.
Thanks for pointing that out.

Martin's email did state it was an Argosy,
however when I resized the pictures I renamed it Beverley.  :-X

Thank you.

Regards Phil G.

Thank you all once again for your continuing support,
I really do appreciate that and I will never take it for granted.

As the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force
is such an auspicious occasion, what I thought would be nice is
if we could have a couple of slots featuring RAF aircraft through the ages.

And as always we must have a 'Balbo'.

Dear All
The Lancaster is due to flyover this event at 11:45am (Local)

You might ask yourself what do the ice cream cones mean
on the side of the Lanc. The ice cream cones represent a raid
on an Italian target.

Bob,
Thanks for your post.
I am from the generation that calls a spade a spade.

PC needs to be consigned to the bin of history
where it so richly deserves to be.

Dear All
There is a chance that Norfolk flying legend Maurice Hammond
will be attending this event as guest of honour.

It was a joy to behold, to witness Maurice's superb
displays on numerous occasions at Tibenham in either
of his magnificent Mustangs.

It would be really nice to see him back at Tibenham.

That's excellent news Phil  :af

I was wondering how he's been getting on - it all went a bit quiet (but that's fair enough and quite understandable!)

Dear Alan
Maurice told me in his email that he has had a restricted medical
since last November and has been flying again.

The Mustangs may be gone but he still has a,
Auster MK V
Stearman
Harvard
and I believe he has a Cessna also.
