Re: Waddington 27/01/2020

ZZ666 was up on a mission earlier, potentially that one? I did clock it rtb on VR but didn't note the time.

Re: Cobra Warrior 2020 - DAtes?

Rumours are currently saying Unlikely at present.

As to whether this means the Ex being held at Waddington, or the Ex being scrubbed full stop I don't know.
