Thank you John.

Thank you Mark for organising a fantastic R2E I had a great ride. There was a bit of traffic on M1 by Nottingham but a bit of combat filtering soon sorted that out.

Till the next time, love, light and kindness,

Dave

Vulcan 607, the story about the Black Buck mission to bomb Stanley airfield during the Falklands war is a long but very interesting read and describes how they had to go around various aviation museums robbing parts to get enough parts for all the bombers sent down south.

Hi Mark,

Thanks from me too. The enthusiasm of the volunteers was infectious.

I was tempted by the colour print of the aircraft in the gift shop but couldn't get it on the bike! When I suggested to Mrs Whistler that I could return for it she gave me one of those looks, as if to say, 'are you having a laugh?'.
She does have a point. A fridge magnet is one thing, a full size print obove the mantle piece is quite another....
