9th September 2009 Duxford
Thanks to everyone who has sent photos for inclusion in this web site.
The Air UK 2009 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 2009 Informal Reunion took place on the 9th September 2009 at the Duxford Imperial War Museum.
Clive Kerr had once more chosen good weather, dry all day, cloud in the morning clearing to bright sunshine. There was a gathering of 81 ex-AIR UK staff and 21 apologies for absence. Six friends and relatives also came. Clive tried hard over the preceding month to make arrangements for a smooth entry to the museum, without our numbers inconveniencing all the other visitors, but despite his efforts the staff arrangements still defeated us – finally only one entry till was working. Tony Rodmell flew in from Yorkshire and Tizzy flew in from Gloucester so avoiding the chaos.
We are particularly grateful to Sonja Weatherill, as ever, for her indefatigable photographic efforts and also Tom Mitchell.
Carl was unable to come so we could not thank him personally for all the work he has put into the website. He has also, at his own expense, moved the website to its own server so it should be improved. www.airukreunion.co.uk.
Clive and I did our best to collect all the names, but if we have omitted anyone or got the name wrong, please let us know.
We are so pleased that so many people came considerable distances to meet again and enjoy a very happy day.
