Another nail in the coffin IMO, each event would have its own event at the NFC, but no more trade, no more mass free flight and everyone mixing and talking.

The TWIT that runs the BMFA need to listen to the members and grow a pair and sort it out so its on each year
so fad up with then not being able to sort out ONE dam event a year
ITS what I look forwards to then most each year
Cant be that dam hard to do it as everythings in place as its been done there before he even thought about planes
we should all bomb them with calls and letters
Make then do a pole and see what we want
single events or one big one like its been done all my bloody life time :evil:

Not sure where you get this from. It is however completely wrong. The RAF have indicated ongoing support for the Nats at Barkston subject to operational requirements. There is no intention to move the Nats from Barkston as long as it is available.

Agree with Si not been a very good year so fingers crossed for the NATS weekend.
It is great to see ALL types aero-modelling together on one big site, so many people don't know to much about the many other types of aero-modelling, free-flight, control line where most of us started (in my case many years ago) combat, fun fly the list goes on an on. For those that have never been I'd suggest you go before they make any changes or lose the site.
Long live the NATS.
