Anson and Rapide Head Out

The Dominie and Faithful Annie are lined up on the apron ready to fly up to Coventry, where they'll rendezvous with our Meteor T7. All three of them are scheduled to head out to the Netherlands for the Volkel Air Show, where they'll be delighting the crowds with their unique charms.  We'll be seeing the Anson and the Meteor back here in Newquay on 15 June, while Delta Lima will be back in Cornwall on the 17th.

So, when did the T7 get back from Laarbruch?

Jon brought her back two days after the show. The old girl behaved herself impeccably both in and out, and we had several e-mails from people across Europe who spotted her overhead. We're looking forward to seeing her filling her space inside the hangar!

D'oh! Memo to self: just because you see Jon Corley, it doesn't necessarily mean he's brought the aeroplane with him! WA591 is back home in Coventry now. She has an electrical fault that needs fixing, then she'll be on her way back to Newquay

My wife & I visited on Friday 21st & were lucky enough to watch the Meteor arrive from Coventry, even got a chance to chat to Jon. Loved the museum, exhibits are excellent, everybody very friendly. We spent a few pounds in the shop & café & got reduced rates because we had gift aided our entry fee.
