Hi
I posted this a day or two ago in the Regional Meetings Section , however there was no response . I’m not sure if anyone noticed it or there was no interest . I’m reposting it here in an effort to determine if there is any interest in this proposal. If not I will ask the mods to remove it.
Thanks for your patience.


Hello to all
Since 2009, when I first joined VLJ, I’ve read about the great time that many of our European brothers have had annually at the Duxford Air Show. There’s more than a few photos of them meeting and sharing the sights and a beer or two after the meeting.
While many of us may never make that get together, I’d like to take a survey and see if there’s any interest in holding a get together annually at one of the best museums in the US., The Wright Patterson National USAF Museum in Dayton Ohio at a time and date to be determined. If we have enough people interested please let me know your thoughts and whether you would like to attend such a gathering. Invitations are out to all, not just the US guys, but everyone. So let me know if you think this would be something we should
try to coordinate.
PS : If you think there’s a better location please let me know that as well.
Cheers

would be a great place to meet up. I'd have to see ... started a new job 4 months ago so starting over on the vacation time and need to take time enough off to fly up ... certainly would be fun! and if possible bring an original for all to inspect! :cool:

There is also the Mighty Eighth Museum in Pooler GA (Savannah) and they have a fully restored B-17 there as well. Not nearly as cool as Wright Patterson but just another option.

There are probably a few locations that might work. At least we’ve got some dialogue started on the possibility of a meeting.
