I meet with the management of the Kemble airport this afternoon and they are very keen to have us back. They will make the car park to the front of the AV8 cafe exclusively for our use and I propose that we stick to the last Sunday of the month which is the 27th May meeting at 9:30.

There are a number of other things that they will do for us. Firstly photography locations. I had a tour of the airfield and there are some fantastic locations such as underneath a 1960s 747. The cars would look great there. If anyone is interested that could be arranged.

They have also offered to show the British Grand prix, they have a large tv projector for this and if we can get enough people we can get a barbecue for that as well.

Finally a number of F1 teams test there, Force India are testing on 17th May anyone who is interested can go and watch. Apparently this happens every month with different teams !

If anyone is interested in the above events maybe we can chat on 27th May

Thanks for sorting this out. Great work. Hopefully should be able to make the 27th. Must say the Force India testing on the 17th sounds interesting, may pop along for a nose about.

Well done that man!

pbishop100 and myself have been to them all since the start, so it would be rude not to continue after all your efforts.

I should be able to make this in plane or car smile. On another note sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there are rumours going around that Kemble may close down in the future to be built on........ May be an idea if everyone keeps their eyes out for somewhere else to hold this in the future if the rumours are true!

They have only recently rebranded the airfield and I believe that Lufthansa have a fairly long term contract there for training purposes so would hope it is not in the immediate future.

Big shame, Peterborough Regatta is this weekend! frown
I will have to keep an eye out for future meets, pictures with a 747 would be fantastic!
Highflier, this place would be good for you and Mr. Keith!
