I fear I may have to forfeit this due to the Coupé eating up most my money this month :roll:

Get plenty of pics!

8am? err no, chance as Sunday is my only day off this week plus we aren't leaving until 9 I expect it will be about 11am, even so plenty of time to enjoy the day.

I'm looking forward to this :D Phil, I'll be there early and will look out for you in the appointed place. Are you in the BX or the XM?

Tim, I'll have my Lexia with me...

Toby, that's a shame :cry:

Chris, be good to see you if you can make it. Come in the 6H, it would be fitting given what Duxford is all about!

To use that entrance, is it best to arrive from the east or the west on the A505?

I can be there any time, as I only live 10 minutes down the road.

In all honesty it's best to arrive from the East, but if coming from the West, drive past it (as you can't turn right into it AFAIK) turn around and drive back from the East, I guess! :)

Jim, I'll be in the XM all being well.

I MUST STRESS this is based upon previous experience (most recent being this time last year) so bear in mind they may have altered the entrance points or whatever. But, I'll still aim to be close to the Land Warfare Museum, the trees and the tank :lol:

Very true, depends on the weather, it would be nice to bring it, but its more than likely that it would be a fast trip down in a C5.

Hopefully the weather will be nice 8-)
