PSSA group visit to RAF COSFORD - Saturday 18th February - 10am

All,

Conscious it's tough for us PSSA modellers this time of year, it seems ages since our last formal meet in October and there's still months of short days and winter weather to bridge before our first planned event of 2017...

I was thinking a group day out might be in order, a non-flying event but one with a strong aviation theme. Who's up for a group visit to the museum at RAF Cosford? It's a fairly central location (Shropshire) and offers a huge collection of aircraft to view up close, both indoors and out.

A full list of aircraft on site can be seen here - **LINK**

Entrance is FREE, you just pay £4 for a days parking and on the proposed date the museum is open between 10am and 4pm.

Could I suggest a 10am meet in the car park so we can all start to explore together... there's a place to eat and a great aviation shop on site so plenty to occupy us throughout the day...

Do please register here if you are interested, would be nice to know who's planning to attend. See you there!

Phil

I've been loads of times, but still good to go again. Like Chris, we are only about an hour or so away.

You need a JP Paul. Build one, as light as possible. You won't regret it! Flies like a jet and very aerobatic, yet can land on a small tuft of grass on the slope. Perfect for flying up the Cloud when the NW wind (and the flying field) blows!

You guys do know Cosford is flat don't you? Though perhaps they MAY let you soar on the lift from the hangars

Looks like some good news! Broached the subject with the wife this evening and she's promised all the clothes shopping will be done the weekend before and any last minute shopping can be done on the Friday so it looks like it's on for me!

But....

and my apologies,

she might want to come with me.......
