Re: Lakenheath base tour

I feel a bit sorry for the guy to be honest. If you've ever tried liaising with up to 40 individuals over something like this with all the emails and stuff involved, it isn't an easy job.

Re: Notam 10 07 2019

EGVP - You could be right. To be honest it was the first time I'd not seen a nothing so I was somewhat in awe. I even forgot to write down the serial though I think it was a series of 6 null values.

Nothing came in, as I said earlier in this thread, the notam was for diversion purposes only and it didn't need to

Re: Van Advertizing seen on three vans.

I've seen a florist called "Florist Gump" which I think is quite clever.

In Bristol there is a burger van called "A Snack in the Gob".
