Cheers Al, great paint job isn't it? Did you get to go yourself?

Hi Karlo,
Couldn't make this year as I had organised and attended a friend's 100th birthday.
To be honest, not done much at all with aviation. With all the restrictions on the loop etc I haven't bothered in month's now. ☹
Hope you keeping well and had a good weekend.

Hi Al,

Good on yer...the planes will still be around for as long as you want but a 100th birthday is quite special.

We've not been to the Loop since we saw you there last time...my son has a couple of weeks off from friday...were wondering whether or not to go across to there with it being school hols...sounds like it's probably not worth the gamble at the moment. We normally spend a few hours at Shawbury this time of year as well, might change it this time and head down to Coningsby or Lakenheath.

Fairford was good...although we've had a better variety of aircraft flying before now. I wish that some of the prop stuff on static would display for a change. Might even do the Flying Legends at Duxford next.

Good to see you are still around on here from time to time...best wishes until we meet again.

Karlo

I would have thought LN & Coningsby would have some activity. Have enjoyed my visits there.
Duxford to is always worth a visit.

Will try catch you out sometime soon.

Yep, cheers Al, that's what i thought.

I'll be in touch next time we get anywhere near mid Wales!

All the Best
