    Jeroen, how are you? I hope you and your family are well.
    Sorry for my very late reply.
    Yes it is in the UK, it is at a former WW2 B24 Liberator base.

    If you attend you will receive a warm welcome
    and there is no charge for overseas visitors.

    How are you getting on with Yke's designs?
    I lost all the drawings you sent me when my hard drive crashed.
    Yes I know I should have backed them up.

    Regards Phil Goff

    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.

    Regards Phil G.

    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 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.

    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.

    Regards Phil G.
