Any dates? I remember a post a while back about possible arrival dates, possibly yours Colin, but I forgot to note the details and couldn't find the post again. Can't miss the chance to get some C47's going through Prestwick.

I think the dates have been revised to 22-24 May, ever changing schedule which is understandable given the scale of the event. 18 or 19 daks total coming from stateside.

Are you sure of those revised dates? Seems far too early given they gather at Duxford before channel crossing.
