R.A.F. Leeming Open Day - 30th July 2011
Jim Clark, who seems to be pally with the powers that be at RAF Leeming, wangled an invitation for section members to attend their families day on 30th July. Jim duly shepherded an assortment of members and their cars to the airfield and ushered us through security and on to the site. We were joined by Ian Hick, president of the Yorkshire Section in his Mk VI and also by several members of the Aston Martin Owners Club, resulting in eight cars of that marque. Also on site were the Mercedes-Benz Club and the MG Owners Club, so there was a good turnout of cars all told. The weather was kind and ideal for flying and watching. As it was a families day for the RAF personnel, there was lots to do and see for the younger element of the population, but still much of interest forthe old codgers.
The highlight of the day was a surprise appearance by the Vulcan bomber.
