Post by g8gtz » Sun Feb 18, 2018 8:44 pm

This is advance notice that CAT18 and the BATC General Meeting will be held at the Midland Air Museum on the weekend of September 15th and 16th 2018.

The Midland Air Museum http://www.midlandairmuseum.co.uk/about.php is a small aircraft museum run by enthusiasts on the perimeter of Coventry Airport, where BATC will have exclusive use of the lecture room seating 60+ people and a small hanger where the demo area, test and fix it area, members bring and buy and a few trade stands will be held. There is plenty of car parking and access in to the site will be available for any special interest vehicles.

The full program will be published in due course but provisional timings are as follows:

Saturday 15th doors open 9.30am
Show and tell and demo area
* Members bring and buy
* Lunch available to purchase in the museum tea shop
* Talks program starts at 1:30am

There will be an informal dinner in the evening at a venue nearby.

Sunday 16th doors open 9.30am
* Talks program starts at 10:00am
* Lunch available to purchase in the museum tea shop

The BATC general meeting will be held at 2pm.

The CAT18 ticket price will include full access to the museum and free passes will be available for those only attending the General meeting on Sunday afternoon.

The venue is centrally located with good transport links and close to the M1, M6, M42, M40 and M69 giving easy access from most areas of the country and there are a number of competitively priced hotels nearby.

The museum houses the Sir Frank Whittle jet heritage centre and displays include an English Electric Lightning and a Tornado GR4. Visitors also have the unique opportunity to visit the crew compartment of Avro Vulcan B2 XL360.

More details to follow, but put the date in your diary and we look forward to seeing as members as possible during the weekend.
