    Duxford 2017....The Jolly Boys Outing!!

    .
    Duxford 2017 - The Jolly Boys Outing...!





    Well folks its that time of year again when we rally the troops and get some interest going for the 'Duxford Flying Legends Airshow'...Europes Largest Gathering of Warbirds..

    The dates this year are...
    Saturday 8 - Sunday 9 July 2017

    This will be our 10th year........Beers, WW2 aircraft, Good Company...It doesn't get much better than that!

    Here's the 2016 trailer...



    and 2011 trailer...



    and 2010 trailer




    The tickets this year are £31.05 per adult (in advance)...New this year the website now says - AIR SHOWS ARE STRICTLY ADVANCE TICKET ONLY EVENTS....So no getting in on the day without a ticket like the old days...

    Here's the link to the Duxford website....


    Flying Legends Airshow 2017


    Every year we camp in a very lovely campsite in Cambridge. A free bus service takes us to the airshow on Saturday morning and in the evenings we share a taxi into Cambridge to get ratfaced...We camp Friday and Saturday night and leave for home Sunday afternoon...

    Here's the address to the campsite, telephone number and link to the campsite website...



    19 Cabbage Moor
    Great Shelford
    Cambridge
    CB22 5NB

    Telephone: 01223 841185

    Head Office: 02476 475426 (Ring this number if you can't get through on the first one)




    Cambridge Cabbage Moor Camping Site



    and this is where we camp onsite...



    If anyone is going and wants to meet up then post in this thread..Meet in the Eagle Pub...or at the Airshow....or on the Campsite...It'd be a real shame if we all get there and not know who is who or meet....That would be just wrong!!

    Text or Ring me if you want to meet up....: 07752 313068

    ...Lew...



    The famous Eagle Pub with WW2 USAAF and RAF squadron graffitti preserved ceiling and with 'Double Helix' plaque!..Yes at first it starts out as a very educational and inspiring visit...and then we get totally ratfaced!

    Already have my tickets, and I am looking forward to attending the show this year and meeting up with you guys.

    I will be traveling down to Duxford on the Saturday morning, and going back home straight after the show, so I won't be able to join you out on the town in Cambridge or at the camp site, but I am sure that I will be enjoying a Spitfire ale or two at the show

    Should be fun, see you there

    Yep...got the ticket safely bought and will be there with Vamps...sharing the luxury of Lew's Curry and Tent on the Friday and Saturday night!

    And I'm quite certain it will all be polite, civilised and perfectly above board...so none of that sniggering! Ha ha!

    Don't worry, Lew! Vamps has promised to wash up!

    Lase...I can't promise that I'll actually be awake for that part of the weekend...I mean I wasn't last year...But I am sure it will be a real pleasure for you to see me!

    Re: Duxford 2017....The Jolly Boys Outing!!

    Senior Day Out ticket acquired some time ago.

    The Matron,here at the veterans care home, has agreed a weekend pass for me so I am all set. It has of course been some time since I camped out........must have been the campaign in the Sudan, just before Omdurman........they don't like it up em you know!

    Anyway as I shall be away from the memsahib I shall still expect certain standards to be maintained in camp. No f**ting in the tent after lights out Marlow. If I am doing the washing up you are on latrine detail so bring your marigolds!

    Looking forward to it.
