    I've already got my ticket for Flying Legends, at Duxford, UK, on Saturday and Sunday, 12th and 13th July this year. I'll be at the show on the Sunday, but staying on Saturday and Sunday evening at the camp site just up the road, at Fowlmere, as I have another commemorative event to attend on the way on Saturday, and deliver a model a diorama at the same time.
    A good view of some of the show on Saturday can also be had from the camp site, by the way, and it's a neat and tidy field with the usual facilities.
    I'm expecting that Gary (Geedee) and Tony (Rocketeer) will be there as usual, so if anyone else is planning on going, get in touch, and we'll see if we can meet up.
    Confirmed for this year's show so far, as well as the usual Spitfires, Mustangs, Hellcats and Corsairs etc, is the Brietling Super Constellation, two Junkers Ju52/3Ms, and some of the 'Red Bull' team, including that shiny P-38.

    Too much going on at home for me at the moment but I still hope to make out that way again Terry. I may be doing shorter trips near family this year and there's a very outside chance I will be at Genesseo that weekend.

    Thanks chaps, and the more (who attend) the merrier!
    Perhaps next year's Battle of Britain Anniversary show at Duxford, which has already been suggested by Jeff, might be a good one to get members together ?

    I spoke to a friend of mine this past weekend and he has indicated he would be willing to make the trip in Sept 2015 with me so put me down as coming. Just the thought of who knows how many Spitfires and Hurricanes all together at once....chilling.

    Have a great time Terry, while you are capturing the British side of things that weekend I will be in geneseo New York having a gander.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Good stuff Jeff. It'll be great if we can get an International contingent together for the BoB show nest year. I'm expecting it to be a great show for the 75th Anniversary.
    Be even better if we can get enough confirmed in time to make a 'block booking' at a hotel, although suitable (and affordable) venues, and transport, near by are a bit of a problem.
    But even a number of members together at the show itself could be a blast !
    EDIT: Forgot to add - if you want any pics of the Geneseo 'Dak' at Duxford, taken three weeks ago, let me know.

    Hey guys, I just heard news that the P-26 Peashooter from the Planes of Fame collection will be at Flying Legends this year.

    It will be on display but they did say they plan on a demonstration at some point.

    Great stuff, thanks Dave. It certainly be a different, and new sight in British skies. I look forward to seeing it close up, and in the air.

    And don't forget that the Mk1 Blenheim has had her first engine runs...sooooo, its quite possible, she may be either on the flying list or at least on the static !

    No problem Maria. I'm sure that, between us, we'll get some reasonable photos. Pity you can't grab a flight and get here - I'm sure you'd be well looked after, although we don't have any Gammeldansk !
