Not sure Steve. Depends on lots of things not least of all the Wx. It's always tricky to get a window that will get me from the West of Ireland into England and back !!

I was so looking forward to catching up with you all.

Never easy Dave. A pity. we seem to be blessed with fab weather further East. Hope we see you one or more days in the next couple of years as it's been a long time. Cheers.

Thanks Nige. Properly scudded in here this morning anyway. Obviously, not a factor this time because of Wx but if 'EH had another 70-80 miles of range it would make the crossing planning a little easier.

Haven't made a UK trip in the Luscombe this year (though had a couple of happy hours in an Extra in Cambridge) but will certainly be back over again !!

Lots a pictures from the meet-up please :-)

Thanks to both Nigel and Steph for organising a great weekend. :cheers:

Fiona and I got back to the Welsh borders OK. Glad we didn't leave it too much later though.

Hope everyone got home safely!

Thank you very much Nigel and Steph for organising this meet up, I really enjoyed it. :cheers:

The last Luscombe fly-in I came to was in 2006 at Oaksey and I didn't have a Luscombe and didn't know I would own one 7 years later !!!

Here is a little video I made :lol:

...and thanks from me for a jolly time
My 1000hrs and 20 minutes landing at Sywell was a bit rubbish - a float and a drop , but my 1001 hours landing back at White Waltham was a real greaser ( ahhh but nobody saw that .. )

I believe Rob is putting a trip to the new restaurant at Sandown together? 6th August is the American Classic fly in at Goodwodd. I should be there and look forward to it! :lol:

Come on chaps! Let's have some photos in the gallery section.. :lol: this was probably a one off and it would be nice to record it in style. Steph is away at the moment but she has a few to stick on there when back from the Ilse of Man.
