The Blenheim is a very pricey beast! The joy of military aircraft attending is that they don't cost Phil a penny for attendance/fuel. As much as I love Northolt's events, I wouldn't want to see the price increase anymore than £30, infact I'd like to see it drop down to what it used to be!! But I understand the issues Phil has around accommodation for visiting aircrew hence the price. My personal opinion would that I wouldn't want the price to increase to make an appearance from the Blenheim affordable.

Hi GZ,

I sent an email, just seeking if you have got it but looking at booking around 6-8 places if possible.

Thanks

Mal

How about a JMSDF P-1, Phil? :grin: :grin:

Joking aside, would love to see Sea Kings again. Sadly all the Budgies will have gone by then...but maybe a Junglie?

I know the Junglies are trying to get out and about to events as much as possible this year before they retire so they might be keen!

As Hawks aren't strangers to Northolt night shoots, how about XX350. I think that scheme was designed by someone who thought it might go to Northolt one day

Not true. Fast jets are allowed if the PHAGS are rigged.

I know it's been asked before but how about a Lynx AH9? I don't think I've actually seen one yet.

Are we likely to see another Firecat at this next nightshoot? (kinda hoping so!)

Any confirmations yet Phil? I would put my name down if I knew what I was coming for? How about a Royal Navy Dauphin from Plymouth?

As we've seen them twice, I'd rather see something different from the Sécurité Civile fleet such as a CL-415 or Dash 8 to be honest. Or maybe an Aoulette III or EC-145.

I'll re-phrase my comment, anything coming from Sécurité Civile? (That is what I'm after tbh, not just a Tracker.) :)

I'm not sure we'll see a Sec Civile Dash-8, there's only two in their fleet and one is often deployed to Reunion, as for the Alouette IIIs, Securite Civile retired theirs in 2005.

Edit - The Securite Civile fleet, to my knowledge, currently consists of: 12x CL-415, 9x S-2T Turbo Firecat, 2x DHC-8, 3x Beech 200 King Air, 35x EC-145.

It's all gone a little quiet here. Unless I've missed something, have we only got one confirmed participant so far?
