This is intended for the French contingent (so he writes it in English!) - are any of you interested in visiting the 'Temps d'Helices' at La Ferté Alais, June 8-9 ; or the military air-show Legend Paris-Villaroche 7-8 September - in your Scimitars, of course? :)

Actually, Jim's pic is one of the aircraft I shall be going to see performing at La Ferté Alais. This meeting is the French equivalent of a Shuttleworth show.

Thanks guys for this topic.
I went there once 20 years ago and it was amazing.
As luck would have it, I will be in Paris the same week-end. So I just have to convince my kids and friend's kids but this should be easy (I hope :wink:).
