The 2007 Reunion – the day after

Phil shows us how to flyOne one VIP gets a flight

Good morning. It’s Sunday the 7th of October and I am just putting a few words together to report on this years Reunion and Ladies Guest Night yesterday at RAF Lyneham.

The Association had well over 60 members and guests turn out for this years 92nd Anniversary Reunion and the day went exceedingly well. With so few serving Squadron personnel on hand to help out, 4 in fact, we can only congratulate them on being able to cater for us all with a constant supply of tea, coffee and drinks all afternoon, an excellent lunch outside on the Squadron terrace and fit in visits to one of the few static aircraft on the apron and show of the C130J simulator.

The coach pick up from the Swindon hotels worked well arriving at the Officers Mess at 19:30 in time for pre dinner drinks and a chat before we all moved in to the main dining room for a memorable dinner, excellent service to the strains of the Cholsey Silver Band and entertaining speeches until dubs (00.00 hrs) when Sam piped us out to the tune of Auld Lang Syne.

More to follow when time permits but before you do anything else, make in a not in your diary now for next years event on the 4th October 2008. It’s worth that little extra effort for a weekend to remember. The Sec

    Hi everyone,

    does anyone know the name of the model company, that made the model on display in the squadron room on the day of our reunion,.

    Manufacturing time is around 13 weeks. If you or any of your contacts are interested in this model, or one of any other aircraft type, you can contact the model making company direct. The address is: Nice Airplanes Ltd. PO Box 8256, Melton Mowbray, Leics. LE13 9AP.

    The man to contact is Martin Weir via e-mail on Martin tells me that they will make both military and civil aircraft models with the customer’s selected livery and are holding that price for the time being. So, if anyone wants a Hastings model with a different registration number or squadron, it would not be a problem. I hope you find this of interest.
