Re: Sad News

I'm shocked to hear this news, Toby Vickers just told me. Although I haven't visited the site much recently I am still sorry to hear about this. My condolences to Dave's family. - Paul

Re: VC10 ZA150 First Public Run

It was down to Tonks taking the time to come all the way down to Dunsfold on two occasions that enabled us prove to the show organisers that a VC10 run could be done during the show.
