I.A. Meet at SHUTTLEWORTH - CANCELLED!

Postby Xplumberlives » Fri Aug 14, 2009 8:44 am

Does anybody fancy a trip out to the SHUTTLEWORTH COLLECTION for their Airshow on the 6th of September?

Duxford and the VICTORY show at Cosby will be on the same day so there should be plenty of interesting visitors!

All you need to do is point a vehicle in the direction of BEDFORDSHIRE, would you like the postcode for your satnav?
