XL231 will be performing a fast taxy run on Sunday 3pm at Elvington airfield.  The plan was to stream the 'chute, but since it's probably going to rain it's unlikely to happen.  Still, a fast taxy in wet conditions should be worth seeing.

Access is via the Museum (with £8 charge I assume, unless there's a concession).

Wet & windy at Elvington but it had stopped raining when she set off
Didn't show her knickers but kicked up plenty of spray!  ;D

Didn't see you jaks.  I unfortunately only 'heard' it from the car park because they went off early at 2.45 (was supposed to be between 3 & 4). Also got stung for the full £8 entry fee too. Not happy all round.

Can't believe I missed you, Tim, as there weren't that many people there  :(
Different guy on the gate so I got charged full price as well instead of the usual fiver!
