    After a very successful visit to the Newark Air Museum back in May, I was asked if I could arrange another visit as it would seem that aeroplanes and Zed's seem popular. It just so happens that last year I managed to secure a whole forward fuselage and complete cockpit of an ex RAF Vickers VC10. We transported it up the M1 motorway last November to the Aeropark at East Midlands Airport (catch it on utube), where I am helped by RockyDave and other like minded people to look after it and open it to the public from time to time. So, if I were to arrange for a viewing on say Sunday 7th September 1200 -1600, we can fire up the BBQ have a beer/coke and burger and have a photo shoot around the Vulcan or Nimrod. I'm afraid my VC10 baby has only its front half because the whole beast would have been too big...shame, however when you're inside you would'nt know as you settle into the captains seat! There will be a very good chance to open up the Vulcan and the Nimrod too subject to staff, but no promises, but I will open up the VC10 for you. Lots of picnic tables around so you also have VERY close views of the folks jetting off on their hols. to the Costa!
    If you are interested, I will form the usual list, and the cost will be £10 a person: (Proceeds to the Aeropark as we have had to buy a second set of steps for the VC10, and they are not cheap!)

    Entrance to to the Aeropark
    VC10 access and guided cockpit access by me or Dave
    Possible Vulcan and Nimrod access
    Photo shoot of all Zed's line up around aircraft
    Beer/coke and burger
    Close up picnic/viewing area to airport

    I am just testing the water here, so I'll see how the response is before I go ahead and finalise it.

    Pete has asked me to post this, if it's anything as near as his meet at Newark Air Museum to go by, it should be a good day.
    Anyone interested could PM me, I will ask him to add you to the list.

    Wish we could make this but as I told Pete and Dave at Gainsborough we will be away in Florida that weekend. Hope it is a great day if it goes ahead. I'm sure all from the G town meet will be up for this and I will be watching for some photo's.
    Cheers,Tony.:)
