They don't want me on UKAR!!! :( I've tried to log in to no avail and I've tried several ways to contact the admin and had no response.

I'm not THAT bad am I ???? ;) ;) ;D ;D

Time to bump this thread as it's dropped off the radar in the last couple of months.

Our friends at spotter magazine have published an article about the Skymaster.

https://issuu.com/spottermagazine/docs/spotter_issue_13

As you may have seen we have had our first event at North Weald which was an encouraging start with over 150 people visiting the aircraft and buying some stuff from the stand we had set up.

We have a stand booked at RIAT and will have the first of our T shirts on sale along with some stickers and pens.  Come along and say hello (you'll probably meet some familiar faces) we will be in the Red Zone.

The face book page is still going well with over 1100 people following the page now.

Just giving is a bit slow with just over £700 raised, thank you to everyone who has contributed.

Really enjoying working on this and looking forward to returning this old warbird back to her rightful place in the sky - she will be the only flying Skymaster in the Northern hemisphere and possibly the only one in the world.

I'll never give up on the dream!

We should have our own web site up and running by the time we get to Fairford.

RIAT is the big launch where we are going to show people we mean business.

This time next year we will be getting ready to put 498 in the static park at RIAT 2018 to comemorate 70 years since the start of the Berlin Airlift.

Thank you for your donation Mike, it's appreciated.
