Weather and serviceability permitting will she still overfly at Newark for the V-Force reunion?

Is that a caveat for a cavity?

Enjoy the day team and thank you all!

To all both aircrews tomorrow & well done to the ground crew, painters & all who have work so hard to get her to this point & beyond.

I wish I lived closer to see her fly (lots of photo's please)

Yes, I'll be there (Newark on Saturday) and for the buffet in the evening.
I don't think we've actually met! I'll wear my 'Volunteer' badge although I'll be off duty and attending as a member of HQ Bomber Command staff (Signals in the 'hole' at High Wycombe). I left in July (posted to RAF Masirah http://raf-masirah.weebly.com/) just a couple of months after it became HQ Strike Command on 30 April 1968.

All the best to all concerned for the flight. Just hope there is a decent break in the weather.

I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

She looked in pretty decent mechanical nick last night after we'd stripped the last of the masking tape off her. Anyone got a left thumb to replace my rather sore one.
The crew were there doing their escape training & she'd had a full power engine run the day before. Word was that it'll probably be after lunch if weather permits.
Good luck with the weather guys.
