The Summer 2014 edition of the journal (45/2) arrived on my mat yesterday (16th June), so I assume that most of the world will be receiving theirs over the next week or two. Exceptions to that are overseas members subscribing by surface mail; as these can take up to 12 weeks to arrive.
Our 2014 AGM was held on 26th April at the RAF Museum, Hendon. All went smoothly, and a full report (including the financial statements) is in the latest journal. It would always be nice to see more members in attendance - why not put the day (Saturday 25th April) in your diary for 2015? It's always a good day, and will be a good excuse (if needed) to come to Hendon and see the RAF Museum's WW1 Centennial Exhibition in the Grahame White hangar.
I haven't quite recovered from the rigours of our 2014 Seminar, which was held last weekend, 14th & 15th June. However, I'm delighted to say that the organisation was smooth, with all ten speakers turning up (on time!) and doing their bit with style. Feedback from delegates has been gratifyingly positive; a more detailed report will appear shortly. If you'd like input as to how we format any future seminars, we'd like to hear from you!

Wind in the Wires issue 9 went out two weeks ago; and I'm pleased to report that subscription numbers are increasing with every issue; we're now sending out over 900. Subscribe here to receive future issues, and/or email me if you'd like to be sent the back numbers. It's free - and you don't need to be a member. PLEASE NOTE that if you've subscribed but haven't received your issue, you'd do well to check your spam filter(s)! Alternatively, enter firstname.lastname@example.org into your email address book.
We have an active Facebook page, cared for by Adrian Roberts; which has recently passed the milestone of 500 "likes"; plus an reasingly popular twitter account @crosscockade; so that those of us into social networking can better keep abreast of events in the world of WW1 aviation.
