Great news all.

I have just received an email saying that I've won one of the 5 spots on the Lockheed Martin Centennial Flight Contest.

The prize is that I have been invited to the Farnborough International Airshow on July 10, 2012, where you can experience a behind-the-scenes tour of our technology demonstration center; a flight on our F-35 simulator; lunch; and access to the aircraft display area.

The promised flight on the Breitling Super Connie has had to be cancelled due to mechanical problems. But there is hope that it might be rescheduled.

If anyone is flying there from London early on the 12th, I'd appreciate a right hand seat. I'd be happy to share expenses, of course.

I know its quite practical to just take a train and go down there, but it'd be far more interesting and enjoyable to fly in to an airshow.

Also, all hints, suggestions and advise on how to make the most out of this opportunity would be most welcome.
