Fly in 2009

Postby Neil Spooner » Mon Dec 01, 2008 7:18 pm

Here's a "gauntlet" to the Nipper forum, how do you fancy a gathering at Old Warden (sorry Paul, its a long way for you again!) for a gathering. I will (if there is some interest) contact O/W to arrange a gathering, either at a fly-in or display day and see what consessions we can get. For anyone who has never visited the Old Warden museum; it has to be the best old timer collection of a/c in the world, definately the uk at any rate. From the Box kite to the latest Spitfire, all in flying condition. The museum is open most of the year, but how about a fly-in of Nippers in early 2009?

Over to you!

All the best,

Neil
