That's one by train for Saturday only.


Train? Confused

You must be able to blag a ride from somewhere? I'm full, but I'm sure others may be able to pick you up from say Benson?

Don't know who's passing Oxfordshire. Unfortunately I can only make one day, July is always a very busy month for me.

I know someone with a farm strip near home. Don't think Benson is open at weekends. Only for Police and EMS operations.

Apologies this next question probably should go in a new thread, but do RAF bases take civilian aircraft for pickups etc.

Will have to try and plan for a weekend off next year.

I think it depends on the airfield. Certainly Halton is okay and I've sat down at Boscombe once or twice but as a general thing - I'm not too sure.

Well our count down has started and we are limbering up for the Dodge-um challenge 2007 - Oh and we are ready for Helidaays Smile

We'll (hopefully) be down late Wednesday night - long drive from Norfolk after work.

We'll see you Saturday Martin. I know what you mean for busy months!!
ATB folks

I was watching a bit of T4's festival from the beach at Weston and there was brilliant blue skies, lets hope for a repeat.

The beach lawns are a mess after T4. I was down there this afternoon, to see the condition of it and there are dirty great big muddy tyre tracks on the active area - not as much litter though, which is a bonus!

A bit of manoeuvring to get parked between the tyre tracks.

I went Yesterday, not sure who else did, but it wasnt worth it, the weather was absolutely terrible, it rained all day, there were the odd breaks in the cloud now and then, but apart from that, it was wet and miserable! the red arrows were doing a display as i arrived, and behind the fences were the belgian air force RS05 seaking, a white and maroon r44 and 1 DHFS as350 no*69, later on, the sea king did a rescue display at the other end of the beach and it was joined by another seaking and a lynx! if the weather is better then its another 4 hour drive back down at the weekend!

the r44 left after i arrived and i didnt even realise the as350 had left!

Most of the civilian helicopters come down for the weekend, either arrive friday evening or saturday morning.

I'm going tomorrow by train .

I wonder how 'the gang' are getting on down at WSM helidays!

Has the 'dodgem challenge' gone ahead without Catwoman, BLME, WhirlyGirl and WhirlyGuy? If so, I hope TC and his good lady, and 'DAD' kept the side up without us.

Sorry me and blme couldn't make it to WSM Sad Work commitments Rolling Eyes Now that we are "in charge" of a flying school Shocked, it is more difficult for us to 'get away' Sad

Hope to see a few of the regular guys, and newbies, at a future event very soon.

At this rate it will probably be CHRISTMAS Rolling Eyes #X-mas before we get together Rolling Eyes

Cat

PS: Any ideas for the Christmas venue this year anyone? reindeer #Bday reindeer occasion9

Hi All

Just got back from a great day at Weston Helidays. The sun shone for most of the day until the time came for the BBQ.

Sadly the dodgem challenge didn't happen. We didn't see enough people to recruit. Never mind better luck next year!!

It was good for me to finally meet TC, Rotorboater and Alan.
A good contingent from the military. Only one from the RAF today, A bell 412 from Shawbury. Belgium, Germany and Italy sent their military. Also a good selection of civilian heli's including Heliflights A109.

Polo Aviation ran pleasure flights from the beach with 2x 206's and a AS350 from Lomas helicopters.

All in all a good day today, never mind the rain , the beer and burgers made up for it. One Italian was walking round dishing out the wine from a box at one point.

Hello, can i ask, what 206s were there?

if G-SPEY was there, im going to hate myself for ever Sad if not then im in the clear Smile

i flew in G-SPEY for 1 3/4 hours last year and i really wanted to see it again, but sadly the weather stopped most of the civil helicopters from flying down there on thursday

Hi
