Events 2012

An early list for 2012. Some of the entries in these listings are a bit vague — a few are long running annual events that we anticipate but for which we have not yet received details, others are one-offs for which organisation is still being worked out. Obviously if you are involved in organising any events that would interest MEC members then please let us know (email takeoff@messerschmittclub.org or send to Mark or Alan).

Contact details and events listings are as accurate as possible given available information at the time of publication.


If you attend any of these events then let us know. If you took any photos you'd care to share with the rest of us then so much the better. It doesn't have to be an epic "what I did in my holidays" essay either, just a brief email and a couple of snaps is all your fellow enthusiasts need. Submissions to takeoff@messerschmittclub.org.
