RAF vehicles on parade

Hundreds of RAF MTDs enjoyed a lively reunion at an air museum near York over the weekend.  The event at the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington was organised by Bill Cundall and Ian Scales, following the success of their website, which was set up to put RAF MTDs from this specialist field, back in touch with each other.  Several huge vehicles which are used to transport aircraft and other heavy duty equipment were on display at the reunion courtesy of No 2 MT Squadron, RAF Stafford.  Past and present RAF personnel travelled to Elvington for the event, from as far away as Thailand, Canada and France.  Bill and Ian, who served together during their careers said, "It was an amazing turnout, once people got together they were surprised at the amount of old friends they were reacquainted with at the Reunion."  The 1940s style NAAFI at Elvington was the perfect venue for this event which brought together people who served as long ago as 1945 and those who are currently serving. 
Bill and Ian have received many requests to make this an annual event, details will follow on their website: www.rafmtd.co.uk
