What time is she displaying? I'm going for a drive in that direction.

We left at 10:45 and were just in time to see her at 3 o'clock.

The banshee scream in the air was not quite as impressive as when we were stood behind her at takeoff at Filton in 2010 but impressive nonetheless. The display was better though. Next chance for BOLLECKS is W-S-M on 21st June. Gets the beers in the fridge Pinky. :poke:

If there are any beers in my fridge, you'll be more than welcome to share them.....

...but I'll be drinking Mojitos on the beach in Cuba on that day.

Not sure if that deserves a :D or a :( as I'd love to have been at home for it :?

However, Yeovilton on 11th July may be a good plan - we could even tell them there Southerners about it, and see if we can organise a LEC day out :D :D

We spent our wedding anniversary taking my mother to a doctor's appointment. :roll:

Leave the key under the mat - Pete and I can probably find some things to go in the dishwasher while we're drinking your beer. :-D

The front door probably won't be locked if Jamie is at home (but that means there won't be any beer either) - help yourself to the dishwasher :lol: ....

....oh, and if you just walk in through the front door make sure that you've got your Nikes on and can run faster than Pete - the dogs will both just go for the first one they can catch so you just have to be further away than someone else, not faster than an angry Alsation :lol: :lol:

Anyway, do you fancy Yeovilton? It'll make a change for you to have to go past my house to get to an event!

Yeah, good idea. And the keys to your store of spares and your workshop as I might want to do some sand blasting. Come to think of it if you could make the spare beds up it'd allow us sufficient time without rushing :twisted:

Oh, I'm pretty good with dogs!

Once again, the workshop isn't usually locked as the only way to it is past the dogs!!! (but it probably now will be if you are good with dogs)....

..actually, they are a pair of softies (like most well kept GSDs) - but they make all the right noises and Floyd is exceptionally large for the breed - however, you don't get sacked from being a Police dog for being "too aggressive" for no reason - as Clint would say, "Are you feeling lucky?" :lol:

The Hurricane and Spit have just rumbled directly overhead on their way to Weston. There's something about the Merlin soundtrack. Must set the alarm for 16:45:

I was driving up the Fosse Way just south of Halford at about 16:00 this afternoon and saw the Vulcan displaying somewhere in my eleven o'clock. Over Wellesbourne, perhaps? There was clearly a classic car show somewhere in the vicinity too - by that time I had seen a TR4, six Jensen Interceptors and a Jensen-Healey, and then kept station with a CV-8 for ten miles northbound. No M100s, though :(

Will you just be watching that from the outside then Kathryn, or are you attending the event?
