I checked the Milton Keynes Aviation Society's website and he's coming for their 'Aircrew Forum' at Bletchley Park. I nearly died - all tickets had almost gone ! Having sent off my cheque I've waited all week in panic mode ; but the precious ticket arrived this morning. smile.gif
Here's the list of guests who it is hoped will attend ; -
Jack Biggs - ex 17 Sqn ( Far East )
Jack Bromfield - 158 Sqn ( Halifaxes )
Peter Fahy - ex Spitfire PR pilot
Sam Halpert - ! - a member of these forums graemlins/salute.gif
Jim Langford - ex Fleet Air Arm Barracudas
Norbert Hannig - ex JG54/JV44
Branse Burbridge - 85 Squadron Mosquitoes
Norm Rosholt - 452nd BG B-17 pilot
and, of course -
Peter Spoden graemlins/salute.gif

The event as a whole promises to be most interesting ; the exhibitions at Bletchley Park will be specially opened for guests to view before the ticket-only forum begins. It's a most interesting cross-section of guests ; I only hope that they can all make it. Peter Spoden apparently intends to fly over in a light aircraft accompanied by his Son.
I was very interested to meet Branse Burbridge very briefly at Hunsdon just the other week and hope very much to hear more from him this time.
It's certainly an evening to look forward to. graemlins/salute.gif

A very distinguished group of veteran aviators indeed and a Forum I shall long remember. I was able to see Sam Halpert for the second time in four days, and what a great treat it was to - at long last - meet Peter Spoden.
As the only German present, he made a great ambassador for the Luftwaffe, answering each question patiently and fully.
Oh - and if you think that Germans have no sense of humour, then you haven't enjoyed Herr Spoden's company ! A very nice man .....
