What a fantastic day, one to remember, really loved "Challenger" it was so much fun, thanks very much Karl & Angie for letting me loose in him, it was nice to see so many C5's together, the trip home was good 2 and a 1/2 hours. I still had such a grin on that my noodles kept falling out of mouth eating my tea  :D

Retro Andy.

Great to meet you all yesterday. Very enjoyable and a great venue to have it at. Found myself sitting in the captains seat on that brilliantly jaded VC10 chatting to the old guy who used to be the flight engineer on one. Only fly in the ointment was that the M23 was closed both ways on the way back so had to go along the old A23!

I must spend more time tidying and cleaning up mine as everyone elses looked in so much better condition. Hope to meet you at a possible South coast meeting soon.

Glad everyone seems to have enjoyed the day & got home ok  8)

We avoided the M23 gridlock and took j9 of the m25 to go home via Boxhill,Reigate etc to Crawley. Nice scenic route that ,much to our surprise, wasnt busy at all.


Here are a few more piccies that have been sent to me as not everyone seems to be able to cope with photobucket  ;D

These have been sent from Keith - the c5 owning Brooklands gent with the microphone ;






..some nice formation shots there  8)

Sounds like you all had a really nice time, and the weather to match.

Had a look at the pics / footage of the C5000 .... excellent piece of machinery  ;D

I've missed this show twice now so really must try and get there next year  :D

Yes,I got home and started to unload the Ubmobile,and found the boot was missing.LOL.
I should have removed it,but was not thinking straight.
I have an old one but it needs a liner and key lock.
So If anyone has a spare and is also comming to my October Norfolk Run,I would apreciate it.

Oh! Bugger!

Sorry to hear about that Ray, hope you find a replacement. Not worth retracing your steps back to brooklands then? :)
