Best thing to do is ring the man and ask, At least you will get it from the horses mouth so to speak..

Seems pretty certain RH will be going back, shame since it was the best of the lot.

TJ,

What do you mean tomorrow night - I thought you were going there for 2.00pm!!

I'm aiming for 7:30 - 8.00 (pm), do I need to carry a copy of the Sunday Times or wear pink carnation?

See you there

AW

You'll recognise me - I'll be drunk!

Cheers

1st Flight

Am up in the Northeast for the weekend. This afternoon Neil Clark was pulling 2 of the old club planes out of the hangar. I gather the hope was to go for a first flight. Anybody know if they managed? Only aircraft I saw moving on the apron was G-TYNE.

Hi Gang:

Yes MetOffice, you are indeed correct - G-BMUZ took it's first flight for a number of months this afternoon, I think JC was P.1

G-BAWK's batteries were flat as a f**t so nothing happening there for a while...

The "WINGS" Bar & Restaraunt renovations taking shape nicely, the place will look brilliant, completely different but keeping a strong aviation theme. I think "Mine Host" hoping to have work done and completed and open by March 23rd. It will be THE place to be, that great club atmosphere again where it belongs - AND without a committee.. or elitism..

I really think that now we have flying training/private hire back in some form, the bar/restaraunt imminently opening and certain staff members back in employment we should have that 5th gold bar!!! (PPRUNE - please note)

Having watched this thread since it's inception I've seen the highs and lows that have rolled through like waves over the months.

Glad to see that it all seems to have come good in the end. Good luck for the future. How much would it cost to land an Auster there?

Hi Gang:

Yes - I have a hangover from hell...


On a lighter note - both G-BAWK & G-BMUZ back up flying this morning, never thought I would ever see it again...

Hi GT,

It was really nice to put some faces to names last night.

The old flying school offices are in slight disarray at the moment (understandably so) but I think NC will work wonders - it was great to be back there again yesterday. Sitting with JC, having a coffee and then going up in G/WK - just like the whole sorry thing never happened.

Judging by the potential drinking ability of some of the folks last night I'm sure that we can ensure that Mr Ballinger's till will be ringing merrily in WINGS.

TJ - I hope you weren't on your scooter last night

PD
