PFA Flying For Fun Rally 1-3 July 2005

VISITING AIRCRAFT - Index and Acknowledgements

This is a list of the aircraft at the PFA Flying For Fun Rally at Kemble on 1st to 3rd July 2005, and in the build-up period.

It was compiled by David Wise, assisted by Ray Hill and Vince Horan. The primary sources were the official booking-in and booking-out records and the movements log. A check of visitors night-stopping was made early Saturday and Sunday.

This list was originally posted on the website.

Short local flights have been omitted (including trade demo's and several weather diverts-back on Friday afternoon). Longer absences including overnight are treated as repeat visits and are shown as multiple attendances.

It is being further cross-checked against several other individual enthusiasts logs, some submitted direct to me, and some copied from the Airfields and CAE e-mail groups. Many thanks to Geoff Church, Kelvin Cross, Andy Drinkwater, Kevin Herpe, Les Herran, Alan Palmer, Mike Roach and Mark for their logs, plus additional snippets from several other people on the internet groups.

In response to comments on the earlier draft releases, I have reorganised the date coding. From the Friday onwards it simply shows the date in July. For the few aircraft present earlier, it shows the last digit of the June date. So the scheme is:
Up to & including Wed 29 June = 9, Thurs 30 June = 0, Fri 1 July= 1, Sat 2 July = 2, Sun 3 July = 3, Mon 4 July or later = 4.

Where known, this is followed by the approximate time of arrival or departure from the movements log. "Late" simply indicates an evening movement which was not logged, particularly on Thursday. It then shows the source and intended destination airfields. Pilots names have been deleted because of data-protection act concerns.
