I'm doing the .org convoy from Royston so I'll see you guys there.

I'm guessing we're parking by Zed/F order rather than as a SMS stand?

Yeah, all the Zeds are in their specific model areas and the rest of us are in the 'Other MGs'... Cool

I'm sure we'll all find each other anyway... See you there!

Interesting little snippet on admission cost.

If you look at the Duxford WEB site, they offer reduced admission cost of £13.20 for adults for organised group visits (minimum 10 people) but we are paying £14.95.

Would be cheaper to do an SmS group visit and park in the main car park! Laughing

That might be the discount MG drivers get. That may be the way it works, as we are part of the MG group attending...

No, not too late. We're all paying on the gate. I'll add you to the list. Could you stay over at Lee's and join the convoy?

Shouldn't be a problem mate, I'll check with the 'rents when they return on Wednesday but they never have visitors Laughing

What do you fancy, pub, Chinese, Indian or other alternative entertainment?

I thought that was the normal gate price. Somebody said something about it being £13.80. Still, not bothered. Duxford is good value for a day out, providing it's not too wet...

We may well join you at the Priory on Sunday rather than be picked up on route.

Assume we will be there but I will text you (Rich) on Sunday morning to confirm or if for any reason we revert to the A45 Layby pick up.

My wife is coming and I have a friend joining us so will be three of us in the car so Ed and Sarah will be in their own car. Ed had his TF MoT'd yesterday and it failed on brakes (hoses I think) hopefully it will be fixed tomorrow otherwise he will be coming in the BMW.

What a day. Very long and I'm truly kn***ered and I think I know a couple more people who might feel the same... But it was great.

Although the actual show was a little smaller than I expected and there were no traders, there was an interesting and varied collection of the Zed range indispursed with a few DNA sharing Rovers to have a gander at, all nicely presented. It was a shame that all other MGs were put in a field on the other side of a few large buildings so we felt as if we weren't part of the action. That might be down to the venue though.

We spent most of our time looking at the Duxford aircraft displays which had expanded a lot since I was there last. And we were entertained by a few actually flying. The funniest part of all was when we were in a hanger and the distinct sound of a Merlin engine was heard. Obviously there were more than a few aircraft enthusiasts amongst us as the hanger quickly emptied and outside all were staring to the skies as a Spitfire accompanied by a Mustang did another flypast before landing in front of us.

Enough of the chat... My pics are HERE... all 116 of them!

Yes, a really great day, as you said, brilliant to see the Mustang and Spitfire flying tandem and also the little De Haviland - very thirties!

Lack of traders was a double edged sword - I didn't buy anything.

Congratulations to Iain on his double victory!

My pal Chris was eyeing up the black TF 160 that was for sale so you never know, masy be a new member before too long.

see you all on 4th August

I had a lovely day wandering around with some of the south mids crew, some lovely cars and even though im not an aircraft enthusiast I still think it was amazing seeing the spitfire come in and to be close enough to reach out and touch it as they were bringing in to the hanger:)

OMG! Did Ian win Pride Of Ownership?! Wow, thats Sounds fantastic and well deserved I think! Congrats to you, I'm very pleased for you Smile

I, for one, am fooked Laughing

I didn't manage to look around the main hangar but got around everything else-the fly pasts were excellent and I enjoyed the Battle of Britain hangar. Smile

Must admit Rich-I was a little surprised there was no "official infield" TF/F parking, but again the layout of the grounds didn't help much.

The ZS won it's class in PoO and also the Chairman's Choice award Ooh embarrassing! although rather embarassingly I was rabbiting away to Dan and another chap when my name was called, so I looked a complete prat Laughing !

It's just a shame I don't have £35,000 for that ZT500...I want! Plus a ZR in Celestial Blue, a ZT in Biomorphic...I could go on!

Yes, a great day all round. we did like many others moan about the entry cost but when you start to see what is available and it takes all day to see it then you begin to understand the enormous expenditure involved in keeping this display of aircraft together. Billions of pounds worth, Black Bird and a B52 included, wow.

Congrats Ian, well done ....

Thank you all for a very enjoyable event.

Had a really good time looking around both the museum and cars on display. Very Happy
Some interesting monogram colours that I hadn't seen before. Cool

Didn't realise it was Iain who won the PoO, but that happens when you don't know forum people. Well done.
