Sorry Captain, being aware of the weather I elected to make a later than normal start and was on parade shortly after 13.00.

Sadly, the only other members on parade were Niven and his good lady - he last reported during September last and so has been demoted from full member to part timer.

We did of course delight in seeing Rebel 87 return fully swept and at 399.9 knots, and really enjoyed the Typhoon 29 display - even though he has to start at not below flight level 100 ish. A further delight there is of course that our absent members missed it.

Well then hotdog, don't think I can delight you with the forecast - it looks as if the morning will bring showers, with a cloudy but hopefully dry afternoon in a gusty 9C westerly - runway 25 all day.

We last week of course missed the chance to catch a moderator with his wallet ajar, wonder if that will happen again soon.

Night flying this week, so a slightly late start, also displays at lower levels from Wednesday onward.

Little darlings will be about, hope we get the well behaved ones this time, and of course Niven will be there again.

Well, we did enjoy our day with plenty of us on parade.

Jimbo has just celebrated his 80th - must have been the National Service RAF Regiment time with the monkeys on the rock that gave him that little extra - wish he would stay awake through the afterburn take offs though.

Andy was in fine form, tossing the black ball to and fro with The Captain - full membership still somewhere over the horizon.

And of course, Niven failed to appear again.

Whilst last weeks parade was dismal - only myself, The Boy George and trainee Andy present - this week was a lot better with Jimbo, Owen, Mark1 and Peter (Scotty) all there to see the display.

With squawk set at 7004 for display, and minimum height set at 1,000 feet, Typhoon 40 came in to give us our entertainment. We loved it, and know it will be even better as he comes down to true circuit height.

This was followed by Havoc 31 going vertical,in pto mode, then 32 going at only say 50 degree climb - but still fun.

We noted that Tinky was absent again.

Don't really need a weather forecast this week, as we all know it will be a bit Chile at night and delightful warmth during day.

Needless to say, I expect a full turnout for Typhoon 40s entertainment at 13.00.

Well, we did have a good day yesterday. Typhoon 40 entertained us well, though still not below 1,000 feet.

15.15 Gunfighter 43 and 44 went up in the vertical manner, followed some 20 mike later by Gunfighter 41 - 42 a ground abort.

Seems they were going to rendevous on the tanker, so why not use some fuel first.

We all missed The Nottingham Chapter, and look forward to their eventual visit.

Well planned hotdog - we of course had a good day with Typhoon 32 (BJ t-bird) with Noel steering and Supervisor Jamie along for the ride as part of the ongoing handover.

Will keep the Easter eggs safely away from Tinky's grubby little fingers until you can attend.

Trust all other Nottingham Chapter are OK.
