Welcome to 2017! after a very successful Birthday Party at SYWELL last year for BRUG and others as our Luscombes hit around the 70 year old mark another well intentioned Luscombe meet up and beer is now being considered. Let's get some more ideas around the table and execute them- life is rushing us past and soon the Luscombes will out live us!! The Luscombe site is stable at present and an excellent source for tech talk and events. So let's try and make 2017 a year to remember! safe flying all and look forward to meeting as many as we can get together over the year! Cheers, Nige.

WELL, WE'RE CERTAINLY NOW INTO AUTUMN AS I LOOK OUT OF MY STUDY WINDOW AT THE WIND AND RAIN, ABOUT TO FLY OUT OF BOURENMOUTH AIRPORT IN A B33! IT SEEMS WE HAVE BEEN SOMEWHAT UNLUCKY WITH THE WEATHER SINCE THE BEGINNING OF AUGUST AND IT HAS ALSO AFFECTED THE TOUR AND NEARLY RUINED THE RALLY.. HOWEVER, I'VE HAD IN THE PAST, SOME OF MY MOST EXHILARATING FLIGHTS IN A LUSCOMBE OVER THIS TIME OF YEAR AND I HOPE WE CAN MEET UP IN SMALL GROUPS AND POST OUR EXPERIENCES ON OUR WEBSITE! NEW YEARS DAY AT POPHAM IS A FAVOURITE AND DON'T FORGET COMPTON ABBASS ALSO! I'M ALREADY MAKING PLANS FOR 2011 AND I'VE GOT A STRONG HUNCH YOU'LL LIKE 'EM! 4 DAYS IN THE CHANNEL ISLANDS, WITH AN OVERNIGHT IN AVRANCHES BEING ONE OF THEM! SO LET'S KEEP OUR ENTHUSISAM AND LUSCOMBES UP OVER THE NEXT YEAR IN THESE DIFFICULT FINANCIAL AND UNCERTAIN TIMES WITH MY FINGERS CROSSED FOR MUCH BETTER WEATHER, I'M SURE IT WILL BE! SAFE FLYING ALL. NIGE.

AS SUMMER SLIPS AWAY FROM US, THERE IS STILL TIME FOR US TO ENJOY THE ODD GET TOGETHER OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. THIS POOR WEATHER CANNOT CONTINUE! KEEP US UP TO DATE WITH ANY EVENTS, BE IT BIG OR SMALL, WHERE WE CAN GET A FEW LUSCOMBES TOGETHER. REMEMBER THE LAA RALLY AT SYWELL OVER THE 3-5TH SEPTEMBER, AND THE SOLENT AVIATION SOCIETY LUSCOMBE FLY IN AT POPHAM ON THE 19TH SEPTEMBER! I'VE ORDERED GREAT WEATHER FOR BOTH EVENTS AUTUMN CAN STILL PRODUCE SOME STUNNING FLYING DAYS FOR US ALL! Nige.
