I'll organise a trip to RAF Cosford as a pre Christmas meet up. Be a nice diversion from the tinsel & turkey.

Well, I'm fairly easy when - nothing is planned that far in advance. Would the 22nd suit more people?

22nd is probably too close to Christmas. Not sure it's good for me.

Given the smallness of the 'window', we're not gonna get the full dream team whichever date you pick - although I can do either date, I'd say 15th (sorry Mark), 22nd is probably too close for people with family - and I should think traffic will be fairly hideous that weekend as people will be travelling for the break ...

Afterthought: Cosford *was* originally Mark's idea, so if Xmas event has to be 15th, then Cosford could maybe be early Feb sometime when the Christmas rush and recovery are over and OMG-will-winter-never-end depression has set in.

I don't mind if people want to visit RAF Cosford in my absence. I've been already, just after Maggie opened the Cold War exhibit. Early February sounds good though. :)

I'll fit in with everyone else. I have to go back to get a proper few hours in the cold war hanger.

I apologize if I am one cause of this clash
Maybe to catch up that thing I could come if that event is back : I'll follow this thread …and hope to meet you again :)

No apologies needed Chris. We are indebted to you for inviting us to Aulnay sous bois. :)
