After a cold night, the morning temperature will creep up to 2C in a light west south westerly breeze. The cloud will thicken further in the afternoon as it reaches 5C.

Runway 25 all day, and, it looks like all week - so our friends at 07 end will not be coming up yet.

At the moment, the following week looks even more of a challenge for those not thermally protected.

Despite the cold and overcast conditions, a number of souls were on parade (Jimbo came out to play) to enjoy perhaps a limited but still enjoyable days flying - where were those Donna Nook flare trial Tornardos ??

We savoured the delights of Mr. Kiplings mince pies (buy one get one - had to be done at 88 odd p/box), Nottingham Chapterress's (?) lovely banana special, George's wondrous bullock pies, and then Teddy2 and Dawn capped the day by pulling an endless supply of freshly cooked hotdogs from their new cooking truck.

Those who didn't report for duty missed another good day - understand Tinky found reason to throw a strop - and we hear that Milky is brewing up another surprise ice cream delight for the coming weeks.

Well it looks like a mix of light for tuesday with some mank at around lunchtime so with any luck some reasonably photos can be taken but waiting for a better forcast from our resident eye on the weather Ted. :P :P

My apologies for the tardy nature of recent times, internet connection has been kaput since last Thursday.

Whilst I note that the official shutdown has not yet been promulgated, our experience tells us that tomorrow is almost certainly our penultimate gathering for year 2013 - here's hoping for a good turnout of members, trainees and hangars-on.

There is a good chance of a touch of ground frost overnight, so Ernie's early call to George will be nice and clear. The little Look North person talks of cloud all day, but I believe that the sun will show itself in a partly cloudy day as temperatures rise to some 8C in a gentle south south west breeze - the odd gust to 25 mph should not ground our defence team.

Runway 25 all week again.

It will be dry all day, but still no reason for those at the 07 end to show themselves - although it may be the case that Tinky has recovered from last weeks strop and is to be found hanging on the red and white fence.

Morning light rain will clear to give a mainly sunny day as temperatures struggle to reach 6C in a steady southerly breeze.

Runway 25 again, boys and girls, and I am mentally prepared for the 1192 rush as we approach 16.00hrs.

I shall be attempting to bring an ample supply of the most delighful fresh produce - at least one (or maybe two) saved for The Captains Table - don't forget there won't be any more until 7th Jan.

Whilst I will be attempting to be on parade at an early hour, no.1 son has me on QRA for a Laura Ashley furniture swop. This may well interfere with our exciting day, but hey, what are dads for.

Understood Tinky would be alone, Woody has other commitments, and would join us after his visit to Geoff Withergee - time will tell.

Weather as above Craig - see my Sat 14th - have just received the expected QRA call, so, sadly it may be noon before I move you all on from parking space no.1.

Going to try for a sunrise pic - so going to be early, may even beat George there.......................

Unfortunately I have afternoon duties, so shall only be there until 13:00ish, but looking forward to it :)

Thank you for your kind words, Captain. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you and The Slug again, and I am delighted to have completed the delivery of some of Lincolnshire's freshest.

It was also a delight to meet with another Mound Dweller, who approached myself and our youngest member with an open tin of festive chocs - don't know him, never met him etc.etc. but what a lovely gesture.

Sadly, I was unable to respond in similar vein, as I had already let Tinky loose on my festive doughnuts and mince pies - he doesn't appear to eat at home in Scunthorpe.

Whilst it may be a little premature of me to start talking weather for 7th Jan, I'm sure that Her Highness will confirm before the event that we are to start the year with a bit of 13.00hrs entertainment.

A very merry Christmas to all, and your families, and a happy and prosperous New Year.
