Could everyone on the list below give me an indication of whether you will be turning up. Extended forecast looks reasonable, obviously we'll do a go/no go 24 hours before. Anyone who hasn't given aircraft reg could you do so, POB and whether you will be requiring fuel. Let me know if I've missed anyone off. PM the details if you don't want to put them up here.

No probs, I'll leave you off the list but if you get back in time just turn up.

Sorry but I'm not going to be able to make it after all.

I hadn't realised it was Old Buckenham Wings and wheels Sunday and had promised to take my son to that this year.

Rog SS.

Disaster for me, a/c I was taking has had a prop strike. Luckily managed with the help of two very good friends and a squillion phone calls to get hold of a Warrior. All we need now is a plague of frogs on Sunday.

plague of frogs?

Hope not, braking distance is bound to increase. But still preferable to a plague of boils......

I didn't realise there were any French pilots coming to the fly-in.

Perhaps a stupid question but... are we all calling for PPR independently?

I've notified Cranfield ops of the aircraft that are turning up with times, originating airfields, reg, type and POB but only those aircraft on the list on this page that have responded. Personally I'm still going to give them a bell Sunday morning. I don't think it will be a bad idea to do so. Just tell then that you are part of the fly in.

The forecast for Cranfield this Sunday is looking OK, winds will be favouring 03. Not so good up my neck of the woods, rain forecast. I'm looking at a 1000L launch arriving @ 1045 at Cranfield. I have to be back for 1530L so will be looking at a 1435 launch. Plenty of time for an enormous cooked breakfast and a chinwag.
