2015 Reunion Review

Air UK Reunion

23rd September 2015 Duxford

The 2015 Informal Reunion took place on the 23rd September 2015 at the Duxford Imperial War Museum, the week after the big Battle of Britain celebrations.

It was beautiful weather, just a little chilly to sit out but otherwise perfect. There was some post Battle of Britain flying to watch.

A total of 48 attended – we were happy to see an increase in cabin crew numbers this year and also ground staff.

The former Southampton manager, Barry Friend, made a 240 mile round trip to attend and brought with him a BIA flag.

Since the AirUK Herald has a degree of unserviceability that would be apparent even to a student pilot on a walkround – yes it DOES have a tail but it is elsewhere – we decided to be photographed in front of Concorde, brandishing the AIR UK flag and also the BIA one.

Another very happy day at Duxford as the photographs show.

Once again many thanks to our photographers and to Carl France, without whom the website would not exist. You can view the pictures from the day by clicking Reunion Photos.

See you all next year,

Clive Kerr and Adele Stephenson.
