    Some of the EAF virtual squadron members in Europe, coming from various countries, will be present at Duxford Flying 2006, on Saturday, July 8th.

    We fixed a MEETING POINT there, for EAF members and friends:

    WHERE: Duxford Airfield
    WHEN: Saturday, July 8th, 2006
    TIME: Hrs12:00 Zulu (UK local time)
    LOCATION: On the concrete ramp, in front of back entrance of the USAF museum


    Anybody will be there is welcome. I'll be wearing an EAF51 baseball cap.

    I am going to take a lot of pics, so maybe I can post some of them later on.

    Back in Italy from Duxford.

    I am working on re-organizing the pics.
    I still have no clear ideas if they are really good pics, or they seem so to me, just because of the adrenaline I got seeing those ladies still flying 70 years later.:angel9:

    Anyway be patient some more days. As I took more than 600 pics in two days :shock: , I am selecting the best, and setting up some pics pages at my website. In a couple of days I'll post the URL where you can have a look at them. ;) CYA.

    Well, I am copying here a post I already put on another tread, just in case you did not find it, and you desperately want to see my pics... (do not do it alone, please: can be dangerous! be sure having your wingman covering your six o clock! :) )

    My pics are now online. So if you are not scred and you want to see them, follow my steps....

    1) Go to EAF51
    2) Look at the vertical toolbar on the left and search for DUXFORD FLYING LEGENDS. Click on it
    3) On the next page click on Duxford Flying Legends 2006
    4) The following page is an index page, where you can easily select the planes you want to see.

    I hope you can enjoy at least some of them...
