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".:ok:

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.

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!

241ocu 13th Nov 2010 11:01

Thanks Beags

Yes 'twas a bit of a doo.

Now imagine the same.......just with Engineers:E


pikeyeng 14th Nov 2010 11:42

Sideshow, yeah I'm a dirty crewman now on Puma's, decided to jump ship early before i was pushed into something i didn't want, how's you??

BEagle 14th Nov 2010 12:34

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.....:uhoh:

Dengue_Dude 14th Nov 2010 15:34

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

haltonapp 14th Nov 2010 18:37

Some of us always get to sleep with a grandma when we get back from flying!

Dengue_Dude 15th Nov 2010 05:03

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

241ocu 15th Nov 2010 06:25

Don't know what you mean Beags.... But I do know a few engs you are talking about......:E

St Johns Wort 15th Nov 2010 12:12


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. :O
