An early post on the BLog with a few of the photos taken at this years Reunion lunch and airfield tour. Although a weather front swept through in the morning during our AGM and lunch, all was clear for the afternoon visit to the C130J flight line and tour round the synthetic trainers of old and new aircraft.

Not quite a “turn into wind and tie everything down” situation, although some  guests are being blown in as the shutter clicked.

Everybody enjoying lunch after the AGM  and briefing from the Squadron in the Sergeants Mess at his years Reunion. £175 was also raised for Association funds, thanks to all for this bonus.

More information and news as it comes in but no doubt that a full and interesting day was enjoyed by one and all. September  2015 is certainly looking like it will be a must have date in the diary.
