Book / Film / TV Reviews / Jets in the cold war
« on: October 28, 2013, 12:35:06 AM »
Just recieved this....

Pleased to forward this from AVM Eric Macey, for your info:
 
Dear All
 
    As some of you know, I was recently interviewed by the
BBC in respect of a proposed programme entitled “Jets in the Cold War”; and some
of you have asked to be informed when this was to be broadcast.  I have
just received the following from Jeremy Hall, the Director of the
programme.
 
    “After several months of waiting we
finally have a date for the BBC2 series on the role of the Jet during the Cold
War.   It will start transmission on the 8th November at 9
pm (most likely but check the TV schedule for exact time).  I am
contacting everyone who was involved in the filming but please do tell anyone
you think would be interested in watching.

Ways To Raise Funding / Latest Trust Raffle tickets
« on: February 15, 2013, 08:46:16 AM »
Is it me or do you think the latest Trust raffle tickets are aimed a little high in price?
Alright the prizes absolutly fantastic, but I have had people comment to me that they will not be buying any .......

what has happened to the smaller priced, twice a year raffles the Club used to run as an alternative with more modest prizes?....they used to be quite lucrative I seem to remember...... come on committee how about reinstating them?

Aviation Waffle / Bruntingthorpe Airfield Fire
« on: March 09, 2012, 03:27:48 PM »
The fire at Bruntingthorpe yesterday was nowhere near any of our aviation assets... on looking at the photo here, http://www.harboroughmail.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. it looks like it was at the side of the T2 Hangar down the back road in the industrial estate. The picture is reversed, I think.

Book / Film / TV Reviews / Do you Have any BAH pictures 1993-99
« on: November 17, 2010, 04:00:39 PM »
I have been asked to write a couple articles for the club magazine about my involvement with '558.

I have a problem in that from 1990 onward I had transferred to video photograph, therefore I do not have any still photographs of the jet during her BAH years [1993-99] including her arrival, plus when she was on the runway I was usually inside her :twisted:  

Can anyone help please?

Prints or scans, but electronic pix must be at least 300dpi when you scan them, prints, I will scan and return if so wished.. please include copyright release letter.

Also can you jog my memory regarding the Vforce anecdotes or stories that have been told to me over the years,or any new ones I can use? ..... if you have anything?

please send it to me at.[ e-mails,letters,CDs,DVD, audio tape, any medium accepted, I can, still, even do reel-to-reel :lol: ]
