On Saturday morning (11 July) very early the time had come to pick up eighteen Dutch and German participants and head for Hoek van Holland. It was the start of the first longer bus tour of 4Aviation to the United Kingdom. Hoek van Holland was chosen at the last moment as an alternative to Calais because of the many strikes at that moment. After arrival in England in the late afternoon the final three participants from Italy and the United States joined the group (at Stansted) and we headed for the hotel directly next to RAF Mildenhall. Because of the late arrival there almost all participants went straight to bed to prepare for the Flying Legends in Duxford.
