The title says it all, this July I think we should have an IL2/Ubi zoo meet at the Flying Legends display at duxford. Then perhaps visit a pub after!

Just look for the guys instinctively holding a joystick/throttle as they wtach and doing that 'talk-with-my-hands' thing as they demonstarte to bored loved ones how they smoked that e/a in their own version of that *points to flying fighter* particular aircraft!

O.K. I'll agree in principal - dependant upon factors outside of my control at the moment. Anyone else?

We can have to factions, Allied whiners and Luftwhiners...we can then proceed to beat each other up with heavy wooden baseball bats http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif, I can just see it now....the group meets up and someone will suddenly let slip "The 109s porked"...and suddenly like in those gangster movies everyone will have guns pointed at each others heads.....jusdging by this forum anyway!

well, ive been mentioned already and the thread is still young, im becoming quite a celebrity round here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif thanks lowflyer and all of my fans for that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

id be up for duxford too, without a doubt, and im sure Fritz would be up for it as he mentioned meeting to me for a pub meet before anyway, id love to see smething like this action, but of course its easy for us UK dwellers so arrange, its just getting the rest over here, i fear such an achievement would overshadow the warbird presence http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'd be up for that as I plan on going this year. Outside the US museum at a certain time is possibly a good way to arrange it. If everyone sticks their arms out horizontal at 12 and shouts "We love Oleg" I reckon the Ubi Zoo members should be pretty obvious http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

A number of folks meet up already, like the 242 Sqn, and a Spanish squad, the ESV Squadron. My squad are thinking about going, some went last year and met up with the 242 guys.

I've been wanting to go to Duxford for ages, so I hope I can make it myself.

Hyperlobby's 242Sqn will again be spending the weekend at Flying Legends, hopefully with members from Canada, Australia and the Netherlands attending. Saturday night, we'll be in the Airforce Bar at the Eagle pub on Bene't Street, Cambridge. We met up with the Head Hunters there last year and 662RAF the year before.

It's one terrific aviation and beer weekend. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

Sounds fun. I'll check my diary, though with it being in the middle of the soaring season it might be somewhat heart rending!

Once again this year I have a firm intention of going, but then I've said that for the past 2 years so..

What about we all gather round P1ngu? We're all sure to recognise him.

Failing that, what's the name of Dougie Bader's pub, just to the north-west?

Yes assemble in a tight group at the US hangar as our He111's rumble overhead with SC 2000's http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Some of our squad will be there this year too hopefully. I met with some of the Tangmere fellas one year, was fun.

If you go to a pub, find a big empty one. I met with the members of my Team Fortress clan a few years ago in a smallish pub and we got some very strange looks http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
