Only the most mad could work on MCS (including myself of course!)

Here is a starter for ten: Is there anyone (male) out there that had any MALE offspring after working on MCS? (I had two girls!) Answers below please....

Coningsby and Leuchars MCS Bays for full tours and a short time at Wattisham bay as well. To be honest don't think I ever did a full 5A2 FIM test. Come on lets here from someone who did!!!!

Hi

Sorry to hear this sad news.

I knew him well, we had some great times.

He was a wonderful person, taught me a lot.

Fond memories.

Does that mean you no longer have the B&B?

Enjoy your retirement

Re: MCS Bay personnel

I built the MCS Bay at Wattashame in 76 with Gibbo and a couple of Snecs. Remember 'Squeaky' anybody ?

Re: MCS Bay personnel

Hi,
I knew your Dad very well. We were on the same fitters course(FAR 21) at Cosford in 1971/72. We met again later when we worked on Phantoms at Bruggen, Wildenrath and Coningsby.
He was a lovely man and we had some great times, mostly taking the **** out of other people.
He always had a smile on his face. One of life's gentlemen.

Regards
Pat

Hi Pat

That seems to make sense as my brother was born at Cosford hospital.

Oh dear I think it is what I must of inherited from him, I do love a bit of banter(mostly at other peoples expense!)

Anyway thanks for your kind words it means a lot.

Regards

Mark

My son was born while I was in the MCS bay at Watto in 1990. (to go along with my 2 girls.....)

Also knew Don Abbot, used to waste away many a minute chatting about fishing when we were "boltholed" from Leuchars to Coningsby in 1980? I think

To echo Pats comment " a lovely bloke"

Re: MCS Bay personnel

Two girls for me as well

Re: MCS Bay personnel

Phil Collins, John Rowe, Kipper, Kate, .......Well there's a few names from a bygone era!
After demob in '85 I arrived in Perth, Western Australia - been here ever since.
Kev Toyne arrived here 2-3 years later - last I heard he was doing a law degree.
Pete Burdett (MCS bay Leuchars/Wildenrath) became a Pilot on VC10's - now flys with Virgin Atlantic.
Unfortunately lost touch with everyone else.
Anyone know where Findlay Cameron is? John Randall?
Very sad to hear about Don Abbott.
Steve

Re: MCS Bay personnel

Hi Steve

Great to hear from you. Looks as if you have settled well in Australia. We visited a few years ago, had a great holiday.

I bumped into John Randal many years ago in Shrewsbury. Not seen since. No idea of whereabouts of Findlay and yes really sad about Don.

Are you aware that there is a reunion next May 23rd?

Have fun


Phil

Sorry to hear about your Dad, worked with him at Wildenrath. As I recall he had rental property in the Blackpool area which he kitted out with ex RAF furniture.
