They were hopeful that the one after Horham would be at Rougham - be great to see you if you can make it Mark!

Thanks for letting us know about the F.O.T.E meeting, Mark.

Me and my better half went to the meeting at Thorpe Abbots and we're now members. It's one of my favourite airfield museums and well worth a visit, but it was a bonus to attend the meeting as well. It was a very enjoyable evening with a presentation about the history of the museum, two documentaries about the museum and the 100th BG, and some interesting conversations with the members in between. I also got to meet Richard, which was another bonus.

Hopefully, I'll get to meet some other AIX members at the next meeting.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad FOTE is getting some PR its a real neat group and fun to enjoy on a quarterly basis at the places that meet.

The next meeting of the Friends of the Eighth will be at the refurbished control tower of Rougham Airfield on Saturday 18th September 2010. The meeting is scheduled to start at 16:00, but you're welcome to turn up earlier if you wish to wander round the museum. If anyone would like to become a member, just come along and say hello.

We met this gentleman at Duxford last Wednesday, one of the Yoxford Boys from RAF Leiston who used to fly P51 Old Crow, his name Bud Anderson, just Google that name for a slice of history ;-)
