Dear All
It is just four weeks until the VE-DAY commemorative model event at Tibenham airfield Norfolk NR16 1NT (Friday, 28/5/21)

There are some changes from previous events.

1) There will be no catering at the model events.
So those attending will have to bring their own
food and drink.

2) The responsibility for height exemptions and notam
requests has been passed from the CAA to the BMFA/LMA.
I hope the BMFA are up to this, I know that the LMA are.
I have dealt with the CAA for the last twenty years,
without any problems what so ever.

3) This change has taken a weight off my shoulders.
Rather than having a fixed price for the day, payment
will be on a per head basis.

£10 for those who fly, to pay for the use of the airfield


My bid for a flypast at this event, was unsuccessful.

Regards Phil G.

Dear All
I would like to publicly thank Rob Buckley for his
guidance regarding, risk assessment and the Article 16 rules. I would have
been stuck up the creek without a paddled without
his very helpful advice.

You beauty, the height exemption has just come through from the BMFA,
still waiting on the LMA, it is being reviewed. We can now operate models
up to 25 Kgs MTOM for the rest of this years events up to 1500ft. All that
will be needed for the rest of this years event is a notam. Once over this
hurdle, the rest is going to be easier for me. I big thank you to Charlie C.
and Andy S and particularly Rob B. for their help.. I have to admit, at times
I have not seen eye to eye with the BMFA. But over the last day they could not
have been more helpful this has help restore my faith in the association.
I can't thank them enough.

You beauty, the height authorisation for models over 25 Kgs MTOM has
just come through from Rob Buckley. Without his help, I don't know
what I would have done. I would probably still be looking at it.

Yippee. :D :D :D :D

Hello everyone,
I would like to thank all those who attend my event last Friday. It really was
a nice day with a good turnout, with some superb models and some really first class flying.
I know that Tibenham is not the easiest place to get to, and the events are held on a Friday.
So I am really grateful that so many people made the effort to attend. Thank you.
It was nice to see the Black sheep Sqn. take to the skies again,
complete with three new members.

Last Fridays Flock,
Black Jack (Brian C.) Black 1
Black Something (Perry L.)
Black Light (Alex L.)
Black Adder (Kev. F)
Black Betty (Shaun G.) Bess (Prop break on landing)
Black Knight (Phil G.) Dibble (Landing long or short)
Black Mamba (Ian W.)

I would like to thank these people for their help,
regarding the height exemptions.
Rob Buckley
Charlie Cox
Andy Symons
I would like to thank the photographers
Peter Coxon
Kevin Fairgrieve
Dom Mitchell

I would like to thank these people for their help on the day.
Charlie Cox
Brian Cooper
Mark Hinton (Use of Tranceiver)
Tony C.
Mark D.
Kev F.

The planning for the next event is already underway.
The café will be open at the next event, from 9am until 1pm.
With a varied breakfast selection apparently.

Eric Ratcliffe, the author of the book, the Kassel raid,
will be coming along. I would like the remembrance ceremony to be live on
a Facebook feed, so the veterans family's in America can see that we still honour their memory.

Camera boys, can let me know how you are getting on with that request please?

Thank you all once again.
