JMA TOP GUN - MAY 20/21 2017

Postby jamie cuff » Thu Jan 12, 2017 10:09 pm

Pat Barnes and Pete Disney have again arranged the date for JMA TOPGUN, it will take place over the weekend of May 20/21 2017. For those who are thinking of attending but have not been before, the event is organised by the JMA and the Royal Navy Model Aircraft Association and is held at Royal Naval Air Station Merryfield which is situated in the heart of the Somerset countryside, it is a satellite airfield to the main air station at nearby RNAS Yeovilton.

It is a perfect venue for a jet meeting as anyone who has attended previous events would testify. It is an aviation training area for the resident squadrons at Yeovilton as well as many visiting aircraft. The only major building on the site is the control tower which is in the no fly zone anyway, the only obstacle you have to avoid is the deck! There is plenty of camping, hotels/B&B's in the area so accomodation will not be a problem if you are wanting to come for the whole weekend. The airfield is easily accessible and is only 10 miles from junction 25 of the M5 and a stones throw from the A303. Bookings for this event will not be taken after Friday May 5 to satisfy the security requirements stipulated by the MOD guard service.

The Topgun part of the weekend will be held on the Sunday only, as before this will not impact on the flying as there will be no slots or static judging and is a flying only event. As before a donation will be made to Royal Naval Benevolent trust https://rnrmc.org.
