Blue_2 checking in!

Postby Blue_2 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 11:52 am

Hello all, some of you may know me from elsewhere, Rich from that there Shacklebomber team at Coventry recommended this forum to me as he knew I'd feel at 'ome here.
My interests are mainly classic cars and aircraft. As an MG owner and part of the team looking after Victor XL231 (amongst others) at Elvington it's pretty much a given that one or the other will be conspiring to skin my knuckles (again!) every weekend!
If anyone's interested I can post up reports here of what we get up to :)

Welcome to Iconic, Blue_2. :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

Start those reports coming. It will be good to keep up-to-date with XL231. \:D/

Welcome to Iconic Blue_2!! They like V-bombers over here, and they even tolerate my ramblings about Shackletons... so I think your thread will be very welcome.
