    Warbirds over Scone NSW - Sunday 25th March. Cliffs of Dover on show.

    Hi all,

    After a bit of work, I have been given approval by the organisers of an airshow to have a Cliffs display at the event.

    Www.warbirdsoverscone.com.au

    It is on the 25th March.

    Torian and I will be playing Cliffs of Dover in the VIP section at the show.

    For those who may be interested to go, Scone is in the Upper Hunter region of NSW, between Newcastle and Tamworth.

    On display is apparently the southern hemisphere's only flying Hurricane - Mark II. Spitfire Mark IX and a Fw190 amongst others.The aero club are very keen to see Cliffs. Particularly given the Hurri and Spit are there on the day.

    http://www.paysairservice.com.au/air...s/warbirds.asp

    They are hoping to be able to set us up on the aero clubs wifi. If that works we will fly on line through the day, which would be awesome.

    Would also be awesome to see other community members there.

    Let me know if you are able to come

    Pattle

    Seriously tempted by this!
    The Hurricane would be fantastic to see.
    It's about a five hour drive from Dorrigo to Scone, so might have to organise some overnight accommodation somewhere.
    Don't know if I can afford all this, but it would definitely be worth it.
    Fingers crossed for this. Would be great to catch up with everyone. Thanks for the info Pat.
    Cheers, Scream.

    As a Canberran, I know that going up there right now would be hazardous to my health. I may melt or get sun burn! Fraid I cant make it Pat but good luck with it. I have the Illawarra Airshow and the Temora Airshow about 2 hours from me each way. Well within my climatic range lol. Hopefully they have one when I am up that way. Would love to hook up.

    4.9 drive hours tho...tempting. Night be a good camping adventure as well.

    I like his silver helmet in the Hurri. Its like you get Flash Gordon there as well

    It is a 4 hour drive for me. My wife informed me it was 37c in Scone yesterday. Should be a bit cooler in 5 weeks.

    M wife is even going. Miraculous in itself. Mind you when she agreed, she thought a romantic weekend sans kids was on the cards. When she found out, when she heard me talking to Torian on line... she now knows the romance with be punctuated by the schweet smell, not of flowers and cafes, but of aviation fuel!

    I say friends, romance is not dead

    Small world indeed. I served with Jim and he was the pilot for my 2 Hornet flights back in 1993.

    Good stuff Pat

    This is shaping up to be the southern hemisphere's version of the Duxford Jolly boys outing, (minus Lew's famous curry of course)

    Hope everything goes well for you, and you get a lot of interest in cliffs.

    Can't wait for the AAR, and photo's of course.

    Best of luck,

    Lase

    Oh well if the weather is bad, Pattle might be the only one flying and will likely steal the show!
