Thanks to everyone who has sent photos for inclusion in this web site.

The Air UK 2011 reunion was an outstanding success, thanks to both Adele Stephenson and Clive Kerr for taking the time to make the arrangements and inform us all of the arrangements that have been made.

The 2011 Informal Reunion took place on the 14th September 2011 at the Duxford Imperial War Museum.

DUXFORD 2011

September 14th 2011

Clive had again organised perfect weather – the strong wind of previous days had decreased to a breeze, the sky was blue, the sun was warm and the only cloud was fair weather cumulus. After receiving over 40 apologies, Clive and I thought we would be lunching alone until cars starting rolling into the car park and a queue formed for Clive’s AIR UK labels. Those who were unable to come had mainly failed to obtain the day off or were abroad on holiday. Some new faces appeared (but from the old seniority lists) and it was marvelous to see them again.

One of our regular ‘official’ photographers, Sonja Weatherill, was in Australia following the tragic death of her daughter in May. Roger Stanley, our other ‘official’ with a camera was with us together with the welcome assistance of Peter Heath, who may have found himself a job.

Carl France puts the pictures on the website – he was unable to come but everyone knows and appreciates the enormous amount of time and effort he has put into the website www.airukreunion.co.uk

Clive suggested to those present that perhaps the reunion should be biennial, but was howled down, so 2012 will be the next one.

Although we have done our best on names, please correct us if there is an error or omission.

Adele Stephenson.
