Re: Photos from Brooklands, Dec 19

Long, long ago, I think I had a photo of a BGT on the Brooklands runway on the occasion if the last taxy of the Vanguard. Would have been 2004 though? *-) :dunno:

Toby , was there a ''B'' in one of your swiss 'fotos' ? Is that yours ?
Not sure if I ever posted photos/Fotos/Föteli from the British Car Meeting at Mollis, there might have beena B but if there was, it wasn't mine. Mine's a F.

Phwoar !!!! yellow 1969ish Lotus Elan S4 ..... Is it yours ? 'Cos it's 'bootiful No, no, belonged to a volunteer I think. There was a placard in the window to explain, and remind you not to touch or attempt to get in it! I don't even live in the UK, accordingly I own no UK reg'd car. I drive an MG ;)

Photos from Brooklands, Dec 19

Visited Brooklands just before the New Year. First time I had been in the rebuilt and relocated Wellington hangar and the flight shed. http://www.shockcone.co.uk/forums/brooklands19/PC291391bw.jpg Barbara Cartland room in the Clubhouse http://www.shockcone.co.uk/forums/brooklands19/PC291392.jpg Cler...

Re: Antwerp by Fokker 50, attempt 2 (successful!)

Nigel - I guess that's all gone now, replaced by the suits at JP Morgan, CityGroup, HSBC and Barclays! In the original post, I threatened to post some holiday snaps, here they are, plus all the aeroplane ones I mostly spared my FB friends from having to look through, but will hopefully interest you ...

Re: Antwerp by Fokker 50, attempt 2 (successful!)

I think we read the same article in De Tijd by the sounds of it! Be careful who you go into business with is the moral of the story there I think. I'm hoping this is here to stay. The second most popular route was to Zürich, so I wouldn't be at all averse to them reacquiring a second Fokker and rest...
