I have received details of this, it sounds like a super day out with some real"classics" both on the ground and in the air. Free admission if you arrive in the morning in a Classic car. CANDY will be there, gearbox willing.......

We had a fantastic day in Pouilly last weekend with Ian ... a pretty good collection of cars and even better selection of aircrafts :D
Purple & Candy were once more side by side to show the ~ 5000 visitors what hunting breaks are all about :wink:
We were surprised to meet people who knew about them - what a change - some of them mentioning that someone
in the area owns at least 2 or 3 Scimitars :shock:
(must be Sjef Schlepers as they mentionned he had some connection with The Netherlands :wink: )

Cheers,
Fred

Collectors of rare photographs please note: This was the first time in many years that my legs have been seen in public! - and they won't be out again this year! :lol:

Hello Ian,

I do have another series of pics prepared to flight ... but had forgotten the leaflet (with the aircrafts' exact names) at the office :twisted:
So will post them tonight :mrgreen:
Sorry about the collector pic :oops: ... I can remove it if you wish ?

Cheers,
Fred

People think the Chinese copyright infringements are bad - and the Russians made some fantastic copies of Western planes during the Cold War (concordski anyone? :-)) - but this isn't called the "French Beaver" for nothing :mrgreen:

Of course I did not drive 170 miles in the early morning just to watch them sit :lol:
We had to be patient though since the exhibition flights started only at 14:00
After demonstrations by small models as an apetizer, we enjoyed seing all the big ones flying - although the T6 had been reluctant
to start - battery problem - :roll:

Enjoy !
