Re: Final flights XH558

Well it looks like this petition will probably reach the required 10,000 so that someone in a government department will have to waste valuable time to respond.

No need for apologies - this is just a hobby after all. Life is often far more serious and has to come first.

Re: possible October farewll tour announced in newsletter
