Hi all

Mrs Setter has managed to land herself a highly paid job exec in the Phillipines and I am tasked with going over there to settle her into her new highly secure bunker. This is to occur in about six weeks time - after which I was thinking of sneeking off for a lightning raid on the UK to catch up with Duxford, Hendon and Yeovalton plus any other sites that take my fancy- I was there last year but Hendon looked lika a bomb had hit it etc .

Anybody want to meet up !!!!

I will bring Pics and Video from downunder for entertainment if required..
Kindest regards
John Parker

Hey Wing Commander,

Make sure you get your shots before you leave, also you might want to have your hommer device check just en-case we need to send in the Militia and save you.

Cheers Col. Rohr :P

Thanks for the heads up and yes I will watch six

My Guys will talk to your Guys and all available security will be deployed both here and in PRM as well. I will leave all Big Scone One units deployed as I am sure you will.

Still I am not expecting aggro in the UK - they are not as allied to the US Navy as was the case with the Hippies in San Francisco which resulted in your temporay incarceration.

Kindest regards

PS I have had my rabies shots so all should be well.

I'm just back from a whirlwind tour of every airfield in Southern England, but will be back at Duxford for Legends in July (It's OK, I'll have two weeks before Oshkosh!)

Hi Steve

I read your tour report - hilarious - I have had so many great experiances in the UK I can hardly wait to return. I would like to get to flying Legends too but I will have to see what her indoors has arranged in Manilla first. It will be great if we can catch up and wreck a little havoc.

I am sorry but I wrecked my Sea Fury Post by putting the Getchell Sea Fury up there instead of yours!!! One too many blades !!

Kindest regards
John

AVM Parker,

I've alerted the Home Guard and the Maine Naval Lighting Attack Forces(Ie Lobsters).

If you get into any problem like I did in PRC then we will be on the move. Please let us know when you leave for your trip so we can go to DEFCON 4

I'll be dropping the supply package in the Mall on Wends.

Cheers Col. :twisted:

No problem, there's only one Ellsworth. I just hope his Centaurus keeps on running, as I believe it to be the last one in the US.

Let me know if you will be in England during Legends and we can hook up.

Steve



Sorry about that...

It is a long shot, but when are you going to be there?

John,
Sorry we can only allow one set of Antipodeans in at a time and the NZ'ers are already here but not doing very well :lol: although Aussie bar staff are always welcome (something to do with Instinct apparently)

Seriously, let me know nearer the time and if I can fit work around your visit, I would be very happy to meet up!

Mike, are you still planning a visit?

Tony
