Re: Trying to find lost details of 1970s trips

The date you mentioned can be ruled out as I was at Biggin Hill Air Fair! It was very unusual for NCTS to run day trips on a Saturday, also after 15th May 1977 t...

Re: Survey / Questionaire

But the shop window for young enthusiasts is internet based. News is immediate and shared by social media, not a month old and passed from hand to hand in a paper publication. To survive, the Society must recognise that the website is the prime publication, not the RO, and prioritise accordingly. T...
