Although no envelopes have left the List during February we know of enquiries for at least 4 of those in these pages so are hopeful of sales soon. Andrew Lovell has been successful in selling all his tanks and several small items from Sweden.
Joining the List for March is a 2002 build LBL 105A from Derek Grimshaw, this having been on our ‘Stop Press’ for several weeks already, Zebedee is selling some nice 21mm nylon tethering line in a selection of lengths, a used Bonanno filter which can be made up with any combination of “from” & “to” fittings, another basic red frame 5hp fan and a brand new Cameron flight bag.
With 1:500,000 Air Maps having such a short useful life these days, becoming out of date in around a year it seems a shame to bin them. We’ve seen them on Aeroclub walls as a planning aid to distances or “somewhere to go” for the famous £100 cuppa or as table decorations in the café at Wellesbourne. We have sorted out our redundant examples & offer them at £1 each in Memorabilia.
Also found in our lockdown tidy up are a selection of unmarked OS Explorer 1:25,000 maps from Southern England. These too are a bargain at £1 each in ‘Other’.
Whilst what we hoped would be the first event of the Spring – the delayed BBM&L Inflation Day in April has again been cancelled until 2022 due to the pandemic, it seems that the Midlands Air Festival at Ragley Hall is ‘on’ for 4th-6th June. Let’s hope that will see the beginning of some normality…
