'Bob' at Brunty

It was great to see so many people out at Bruntingthorpe yesterday to say goodbye to XR808.

Here is my take on the sad event. Was it worth an eight and a half hour round trip? What do you think? :wink:

First time around

Here's hoping for very long and healthy retirement following all your years of service.

Lovely photos of a sad event - will they be doing fast taxi runs in the future do we know?

Thank you.

Bob's future looks a little uncertain at the moment - although he would make an excellent addition to the fast taxi events!
