Wow, what a weekend!
Pete and Tracey of UKAirstreamers spent their summer organising the biggest event on any UK Airstreamers calendar, and that was the 'big' Autumn gathering. And at an impressive 30 trailers and motorhomes, it was certainly the largest collection EVER of Airstreams in the UK, at least to anyone's knowledge.
Friday saw eight of us meet up at Whitchurch to travel down in convoy. And what an impressive sight we made:
There followed the most fantastic weekend ever. Our hosts Carl and Gaynor, together with Pete and Tracey, were the perfect swans; calm and serene on the surface yet paddling like mad behind the scenes to make sure everything went smoothly. Fabulous people, and a fabulous time. Let the pictures do the talking:
As Airstreamers, we are used to people coming over to have a look. But on the Monday we were packing up, we had the drop-in to end all drop-ins. The RAF (possibly the RN, I'm no expert) flew overhead. The next thing we knew, the helicopters re-appeared and came down to say hi! WOW!!!
Finally, a video of the weekend (but sadly not the helicopters) is available to view here:
A big thank-you to Pete and Tracey, and Carl, Gaynor and the boys.
