Well the northern contingent will leave Leeds Bradford airport on Friday evening and fly to Dusseldorf. Its about a 90 minute drive from there. This must be our sixth or seventh year. We wouldn't miss it.

We took a big gamble the first year, even Winnie wasn't sure whether a jet only show would be supported, but he is a special guy so I decided we would go. The first year our hotel bill was more than the takings! ( Seems we were booked into the hotel we stayed in for a joke and we never checked the room rate when we booked in-nice suites though ) The first three years were slow, but since then the world woke up to the show and now its a good business weekend and a great social weekend.
This year the Airshow on sunday will be another departure from the original flying schedule...which I prefered. Shows this year have been rubbish, the Nats this last weekend was the first sign of an upturn with some decent money spent, hopefully JP will be the same.

My 6th Jet Power.  Loved them all thoroughly.  Cannot imagine ever missing a single one.  The Indian group has been steadily growing each year.  This year we are a dozen I believe.

See you all in 2 weeks.

Cheers

Dany,

Why don't you join us and start from Larnaca, instead of Beirut? Then, you can hop in one of the cars, which we'll be renting!

This year will be my first Jetpower, after 6 years of trying to get there but work scuttling my plans, it is finally going to happen! going with a great group of blokes so it should be a good trip there and back.

Just found out that it is now illegal to have speeding cameras showing on any “Sat Nav” system in France![]
As I understand it, you are fined on the spot!
It’s kind of a Win Win thing, for them!
I’m trying very hard not to write something negative about the FRENCH![>:]
Can’t help thinking the same thing will be adopted over here![:@]
Still, we won't be in France that long.
