RAF Wittering-Harrier-25March2016-CANCELLED group visit

Post by C24 » Mon Jan 04, 2016 9:52 am

25TH MARCH CANCELLED. The visits in May & August are still on offer. [Edited, Charlie, dated Tuesday, 1stMarch2016]

I have posted this as a duplicate from The FC Control Mess section to broaden the exposure.

I wouldn't want anyone to miss out! :thumbs:

"I have permission to organise a group trip to see the Heritage Centre.

If you wish to participate, please PM the following details for security checking.

Full name; address; DoB & number of your photo ID [passport or current driving licence].

Assembly at 1030hrs in the main carpark, off A1 north.

The visit is for two hours.

First come, until the list is full; reserve list will operate. Deadline February, 2016

I will post a note when the group is full."

Update[s] to both threads unless a Mod suggests otherwise.

Update on this visit. :'(

The Station regrets that it cannot proceed with a visit on this date due to a lack of person power. Please accept their apologies.

:clap: :D We have two alternative visit dates and I have acccepted both, subject to more than five other people being able to make the time.
Friday 27th May for 0830hrs assembly & Friday 26th August at 1030hrs assembly in the Main Gate carpark.

So, our cup is not only half full but there are now two of them! ;)

The closing date for joining is one month before each visit. Please PM indicating which date you wish to go.

At least the weather might be warmer.

All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics. TSR-2 simply got the first three right.
