    Gentlemen,

    I would like to say thank you to the West Oxon Steam and Vintage Show for an excellent weekend, they even managed to organise an Airshow, sorry that was Fairford and Brize Norton :D , our genial host and his Dad, Gary and Ray Leach did thier utmost to make sure that we were all where we wanted to be and were happy. As far as I am aware Gary made two tiny mistakes the first of which he may not be allowed to forget. To save his parents travelling back and forth to Oxford every day he offered them a bed at his house, ten minute walk from rally, well done son but not an airbed please :(
    The second mistake was to ask this morning two gentlemen if they were happy with the weekend, never do that, DANGEROUS, one of them complained about the noise of the Stationary engines. I personally wouldnt have minded but this gentlemen and his friend turned up in large motor homes with trailers and all that came out of the trailers was a Jap 2A genny and a BSA pump set and similar from the other plus a Chandalier. By the way the ones making the noise were Tex, Mark Walker, Philip TE and Len Gillings up to around 22:30 but so what they weren't loud.

    Well done Gary and Ray you did good, see you at Dorset.

    Thank you martin i had a really good time fantastic line up of engines (apart from said mentioned ones) and a great night.
    The final count up of engines for the weekend was 104 which is not bad for a rally that has not run for 4 years.
    Big big thank you to everyone that turned up was nice to see you all again and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

    Martin i will see you at dorset

    Dave,

    The aircraft was I believe an Antonov 124, its bigger than a Galaxy but is dwarfed by its big brother another Antonov so only the second biggest in the world.

    Is that the 'Wings wheels and speed' do at White Waltham? Very few engines there last year but not a bad show otherwise.
