Hi all, my name is Giles & i'm from deep in the shire of Oxford. Being from there I am lucky enough to be close to 2 Vulcans,(XM655 at Wellesbourne & XH558 at Brize). I'm in the support clubs for both these beauties (only the of a wants & needs of a young family prevent me from doing more!). I can be frequently found at the Wings & Wheels days at Wellesbourne, the excellent Cold War jets days at Brunty & any various airshows I can possibly make it to.
Think this forum will suit me just fine

Welcome Giles - ignore the little monkey's coarse language - we havn't got him properly trained yet ;)

I thought I'd use a 'Giles' cartoon to show how he should have spelt it :p

See what I did there :))

As your intro' suggests you will fit in very well indeed - dive in and have fun :D :D

Hi Giles, welcome to Iconic. :)

You are very welcome to visit Wellesbourne any Saturday. Make it known you are an Iconic member, and we'll treat you with contempt to a cup of tea. :))

As a MaPS member, you get a free cockpit visit, but we'll still turn you upside down to try to shake out any loose change. :ymdevil:
