I saw you all flogging around East Anglia and it's nice to see you had a
good flight. I was too busy to watch though as I had a right bunch of German
arrivals at EGNS. All very good, excellent English - but all missed the ILS
because they were using old scenery with the old ILS frequency. They only
mentioned this when most had landed so I warned the final arrival but Sod's
Law reared up again as he had the correct scenery and going to 110.9 made
him miss the ILS too! Great fun.

I must warn John Hill that tonight's bunch of arrivals were a practise
session for next Wednesday when they expect to have about 25 aircraft coming
to EGNS.

Hi Gerry,

I understand why you don't want to get tied, my problem is I need to be able

to plan ahead a bit. I was lucky tonight to spot your e-mail and be able to 
get in a quick trip, but it did take me approx 15 mins to set up the plan, 
although its an area I know fairly well, e.g. mind the Wash! Also I suspect 
that if we had a regular fly-in night we could attract regular flyers. I can

usually make Thursdays, at least early on.

Anyway, thanks for tonight, I'm sure we all enjoyed it, especially the 
remark about the professional chatter on channel!

Frank T.
