October again was a healthy month for sales from the List – even if not for the world’s people. Covid continues apace especially in Europe and the USA. We can report the sale of an airship, basket, minibus, envelope bag, tether ropes and one of our enlarged list of basket covers.
New for November are several items from ‘Stop Press’ including a 1999 LBL 105A envelope with only 6 flights, a Cameron ‘Helihopper’ jump balloon and a nice little trailer, until recently transporting a Cameron C-80. Another trailer in the List, the Elston flatbed at Zebedee has had a significant price reduction this month.
From Sweden Andrew Lovell has now split his Colt 77B G-EZVS and offers a whole host of smaller items in addition to the previously listed complete balloon. It should be noted that all the fuel systems are Tema, including the T&C vapour connections which are Tema 1300. Two of the 5L ‘pilot light’ cylinders are amongst this offering, now popular with the model balloon movement.
Having held our prices on Zebedee Box items for a considerable time, we are now forced to make increases on a few items. How things will develop beyond 31st December is anyone’s guess with HMRC pushing out all sorts of warnings of changes in export/import procedures, paperwork, taxes and likely delays but of course no final deal has yet been agreed with the EU. Safe to say if you are one of our many EU customers buying before December may well save you money, time to delivery and us paperwork!
