Crew Currency Flight next week (26th April)

Postby Sickbag_andy » Tue Apr 19, 2011 4:44 pm

From todays Newsbytes e-mail:

Crew Currency Flight next week:
XH558 will depart from Robin Hood Airport next week to undertake a training and crew display currency flight.

With the agreement and support of Robin Hood Airport, we can announce that this flight is scheduled for noon on Tuesday 26th April, with a fallback for weather and technical problems of the following day.

We would stress that XH558 will undertake a direct departure and will not perform any type of display at Doncaster. Arrangements are being made to accommodate the public as detailed below. We would ask anyone wishing to view, uses the official facilities within the terminal building or a suitable vantage point outside the airfield, ensuing that no obstruction or nuisance occurs to the local community.

It is vital that we build and maintain good relationships with our landlords and neighbours, and so we ask you to bear this in mind if you decide to visit.

We would also like to confirm that there are no plans to take part in the Fly past down the Mall in celebration of Price William's wedding to Kate Middleton.

Good news, just a shame they still haven't seen fit to employ a PROOF READER! :-o

Judging by the silence on this thread, I take it that no member of IA managed to get to Finningley, or to put it more accurately, whoever went (there were a few) decided not to post a report ?? :(
