Auction price up to £3300 now :) Someone seems determined to stay ahead.

Actually it's called 'Auction Sniper' a last minute automated bidding system,

Never got my head around how it works if more than 1 person uses it tho;  :lol:

I hate Ebay & won't use it!

It appears that someone got my name wrong, and I don't live in London either!   :cry:

Anyone know how many raffle tickets were sold?

Hi,

When is this flight happening? I don't live far from Sywell so thought I go along to the airfield to watch, but I might need a bit of advanced warning if I'm to avoid being at work.
