Duxford 04June

Anyone going to Duxford IWM on the 4th June?? I have arranged a trip with 2 friends who contacted me a while back and will be there on the 4th. Looks like as one of the guys is a very keen aviation buff with many contacts that we may be getting a chance to be on board (whilst not in the air I might add ) the lead Dakota which has flown in from the USA and was the lead plane in the WW2 D Day parachute jump !! This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity, just make sure my camera is ready and primed eh...

If anyone else is visiting on the day I would be happy to meet up somewhere during the day.

Cheers

Peter

Would have loved to, but Iíve agreed to do a charity talk then.

Some friends of mine are going this afternoon on a practice day, but unfortunately I canít make that either!

I'll be in touch next time I might be able to go, Paul. A friend of mine lives in Whittlesford and has his ear to the ground to the various events on at the airfield.

Re: Duxford 04June

Check out the IWM website, there's usually three airshows per year, next one is this coming weekend. NB advance ticket only.

Thanks Walti, very helpful!

Though I may not make the one this weekend - my son is getting married!
