Dear All
I am pleased to announce that I have just received notification
from the Royal Air Force events team, informing me that we will
be receiving a flypast by the BBMF 'Lancaster'.

I have been trying/hoping to get a Lancaster flypast for years.
I am still shaking and I can't wait to see the mighty Lanc in action.

The Lanc to me is the most poignant of all the British WW2 aircraft.
Bomber Command lost 55,753 personnel during WW2.

Lest we forget.

Regards Phil G.

Dear All
There is a chance that Norfolk flying legend Maurice Hammond
will be attending this event as guest of honour.

It was a joy to behold, to witness Maurice's superb
displays on numerous occasions at Tibenham in either
of his magnificent Mustangs.

It would be really nice to see him back at Tibenham.

Regards Phil G.

Dear All
I do appreciate that this event is being held
one day before LMA East Kirkby, there was not
much I could do about that.

Anyone travelling up from the South to EK,
if you would like to pop into Tibenham it would
be nice to see you.

Regards Phil G.
