A grand day was had at a very breezy Long Rock TMD. I'll post a selection of photos here tomorrow. In the mean time, all those I took can be viewed in my Photobucket at the following link. Rough and ready, no editing, some duplicates.

Laira would be fantastic.

Agreed, given the space Laira has it would make an awesome location for a depot open day. Seems this could become an annual event!

Didn't go due to poorly arm. Was delighted to see the son of the Solomon Browne's Assistant Mechanic Nigel Brockman, Martin, taking a lead role in the naming of the IET, in some of the online coverage.

It was a great day out and have to agree with BNM about the wind!
