Definitely Mike, will be good to catch up again. Are you inducting your son into VAME? or has he been sent by your CO to make sure there is nothing coming home with you in an (loft) dust covered brown box? Good company either way.
A fantastic day out and a big thanks to David for organising it. The planes and the VAM chat were both very enjoyable. Unfortunately my only group shot that wasn't blurry is this 'natural' pose. But the blurry one almost works

Its not often that when we meet people that you feel like you have known them for years, well thats how today felt for me. I feel honoured to have met you all and hope you all enjoyed the day as much as I did, its nice when you meet others who have the same interest as yourself. The conversation flows and you find that you are not alone in the hobby, thank you all for coming to newark and taking time out for each other, I hope we can do it again as I think you only scratched the surface and you still have lots to talk about, thank you once again
Being a full size actionman is just the scale of things that life has to offer
A massive "thank you" David, I really enjoyed the Meet and the venue but most of all the company, hope to do it again at some point. After speaking to cookie I can definitely stop spending money on therapy - I am normal after all.
Ray "the Viking" - this is for you for turning up on a monster of a bike in this weather - that's commitment.
A Great Big THANK YOU! to actionsepecat(dave) for a Grand Day Out! Where to start? It was great to meet friends old and new , lovely to see mraction , spoons + son, cookie+son, armajorbill and of course actionsepecat. Then to be shown around by our own highly knowledgeable tour guide(dave), who let us jump over ropes , climb into planes and my personal favourite , jump into cockpits and press buttons,flick switches and make machine gun noises in my head ( yes I was!).I spent 10 minutes in a Tornado cockpit....does that make me qualified now? What 4 years of extra training? Maybe not then.... Thanks for lunch too dave, sarnies AND cakes mmmm. Must do it again, maybe in warmer weather?Ho Ho! Really Dave Thank You Very Much you are a gent!
Thanks for the pics cookie and Spoons! next time I will take some myself but I was too busy pressing buttons and playing fighter pilots.Cheers for the legend scott! It's not bravery...it's stupidity that makes me do it! As the sticker on my bike says " If you're gonna be dumb...you gotta be tough". I've thawed out nicely now....it was a little colder than i anticipated.Was great to meet you all and , hopefully, see more there next time!

Looks like you all had a great day. My daughters are with me this weekend. I had previously agreed to take them swimming, they hadn't forgotten! On the up side they spent the afternoon playing with vam. Now they know what I'm talking about. With or without two little girls in tow, count me in for the next one.
