1. BBMF flypast, Sunday 19th August...
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight has confirmed that this years BBMF Hardest Day Flypast will be at 12.32 on Sunday 19th August. We're anticipating the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire which will be a wonderful way of celebrating RAF100. They will be aiming for the Tribute, and this is the best place to watch from, but please stay on or outside of the peri track. We would suggest you start arriving from 12.15 and as always please remember that the flypast is dependent on weather and serviceability of the aircraft. The Portcullis Club will be open all afternoon for refreshments and everyone is invited to pop over for a relaxing drink. We look forward to seeing you on the day.
2. Trip to the Toyal Air Force Museum at Hendon, Friday September 7th...
For our next trip we are returning to the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon, North London, having previously visited the museum in 2011.
The Royal Air Force Museum London is celebrating and commemorating the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force through a major transformation of their visitor experience.
On 30 June 2018 they launched three new innovative galleries that will explore the first 100 years of the RAF, its role today and will invite visitors to imagine its future contribution and technology.
The rest of the site including their multi award-winning First World War in the Air Galleries, Historic Hangars and Bomber Command Hall are also open – offering a great day out to all.
Refreshments will be provided on arrival, followed by a guided tour which takes approx 2 hours. The remainder of the day you will be free to wander around as you please. There are both a café and a restaurant on site. The café which is located in Hanger 1 serves Tea, coffee and pastries all day, whilst the restaurant, Claude’s, serves hot and cold food and drink in the unique setting of a 1931 heritage building from RAF Hendon.
Parking as normal will be at the Portcullis field from where our coach will depart. Departure will be 09:00 sharp, returning for about 18:00.
The cost for this trip will be £20 per head and is payable on the day. This price will cover the cost of the coach and your entrance fees.
** Please note that once your seat is reserved, if you then find that you are unable to attend on the day, we will still expect the full price of the seat to be paid unless it can be re-allocated **
