Default Operation Duxford

On the 10th and 11th of next month, Duxford is hosting it's annual Flying Legends weekend. As it's the 70th annivesary this year of the BoB, it's likely to be one he'll of a weekend. I for one am going and McQ and Kav are being air dropped in. There are several others who are tentative, other comitments permitting, will endeavour to also be there.
If anyone is or indeed fancies joining us for a weekend of debauchery, plus some nice planes then feel free to drop one of us a line and we'll happily provide details and contacts to enable us to meet up. We may even do a monty python and recreate some BoP moments in a theater stylie!
More details can be found here or by giving me a shout

I usually visit le mans each year ( sadly not this time due to family wedding) and go with a group of mates who all dress up as WWII pilots and ride choppers around the site. I'm seeing if I can get hold of the uniforms!! Then we can all 'fly' around arms stretched out making 'brrrrrrrrrrr' and 'ratatat' noises!!!!
Cameras are a given!! I'm taking at least two plus iPhone and I'm sure both kav and McQ will have recon ability too!!!
