 Proposed Meet in Farnborough during November - Postponed.

We had a good response to my suggestion to hold the first Meet at Farnborough in November.

There were 18 responses, all favourable to the idea.

• Unfortunately, the day chosen was a Wednesday and of course those members who are working would not have been able to attend.

• From the replies, the notice given for the event was too close for planning purposes.

• Several members were on holiday at the time of the Meet.

• Several of our members/partners are currently unable to attend due to health reasons.


Undeterred, I would like to propose a similar Meet on Saturday 5th May, extending into Sunday 6th May 2018. If you don’t wish to stay overnight you could select the day that suits you. If you wish to stay overnight there are several reasonably priced hotels locally for B&B or Premier Inn, Travel lodge etc.,

Format suggested:


Meet for lunch on Saturday

Visit to an RAF related event in afternoon with option for those who would like alternative visit.

Evening meal together

On Sunday morning a visit followed by a carvery lunch.

Meet finishing at about 2.30.

The meals and museums are all reasonably priced.


Please see below for more information.


I would be very grateful for your views on this proposal and if you think you will be able to attend.

Thank you for taking part in what would be our first Meet which is in addition to the main Reunion.

Best wishes

Ian Stephenson
