PostSubject: Thanet Air Show - Thanet Classics Car Display - Saturday 22nd June 2013   Sun Jan 06, 2013 4:30 am

Got an email about this yesterday and jumped on it quickly to make sure that the number one club in the South East is at the front of this massive event for Thanet.

This year it is held at Manston Airport (as it was years ago) and they are estimating over 18,000 people will attend.

They would like us to take along as many classic cars as possible and as I am sure everyone will want to be involved in this it shouldn't be a problem to get 40+ cars. To make sure that we have the biggest display possible I will be inviting a few of our friends who has attended events with us over the years including Essex Classics, Medway Monkeys and Hazzard VW Club. If anyone else knows any other clubs who may like to be involved let me know.

We also have the opportunity for a 10-15 minute (upto half hour) in the centre arena to display the club to the best of our ability. My first thought was something similar to what we do at Staple Country fayre, a decent selection of cars from various years and styles obviously we can't involve everyone in this. But a great selection would be good. If you want to be involved in this let me know or if you have any amazing ideas please tell me them!!

This could be massive advertising for the club and we need to get behind this.

I have managed to secure us some reduced price tickets as well in thanks for displaying our vehicles.

Driver + Car = FREE
Additional Adults = £6 (down from £9)
Additional Children = £4 (Down from £7)

These tickets must be booked through the club and me. Other wise you will be paying the full rate on the gate. Also if your name isn't on the list before the event you will not be able to display.

Get behind it, lets show the Air Show what we are made of....

~Lee

P.S. More details will be available to me in February.

That would be great Roger, I've heard this might be 558's last year due to mounting costs :'(.

I'd be up for this, I'll get Mary to book the day off!

Your right this is the last year for the Vulcan

To fly after 2013 it would need some modifications to the main spar, routine maintenance.

Due to there no longer being the equipment, jigs available to do the job it could not be guaranteed to be successful, it would also be irreversible if it went wrong. Also the lack of engines to cover any problems, engine refurbishment also has the same problems with regards the other refurbishments of the main spar.

And also after that comes the cost.

The Vulcan to the air website gives a better description.
