RAF Air Engineer Association/70th Anniversary


As 2011 is the 70th Anniversary of this historic and, sad to say, soon to be severely diminished branch, it has been decided to breathe new life into the Air Engineers Association.

A few social evenings and a major formal event are planned for 2011, however we have decided to hold an informal "meet and greet" in Doncaster on Sat 27 Nov at 1700.

Any current or ex-serving RAF Flt/Air Engineers from its inception to the current day are more than welcome to attend,which will include an enrolment opportunity for all those interested in joining the association-followed by a traditional "EPU".

For details of the venue and a chance to enrol for those unable to make the 27th please contact any of the addresses listed below.

Looking forward to hearing from you!!!!

If Kenny does as good a job with the Air Eng's 70th anniversary events as he did with the 241 OCU end-of-an-era do this summer, you will be in for a very good time indeed!

Kenny - I wonder whether the jungle drums have been beating in Doncaster amongst 'ladies* of a certain age'...?
















*this might be rather a charitable description of some, judging by the moose-trapping skills of certain VC10 air engineers.....

It's the 'certain age' of those ladies that's likely to be the embarrassing bit I'd say . . .

Now that's unkind Mr Y . . .

Do you know, it even happens when you don't fly anymore, wonder what causes that.

Perhaps our tastes change

Strictly speaking your'e not a Puma Crewman (dirty or otherwise) yet!

Be a good chap and pop next door before your next trip, the QHCI's have got a bit of paperwork for you to sign.
