Ascension 21 May - 3 Jun 2017

Postby roger dickey » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:58 pm

The dates for AOS to visit Ascension Island are currently 21 May - 3 Jun 17. These are as yet provisional as the birds have yet to show any signs of settling.

Admin arrangements will become clearer in 2 weeks time when bids will be required. Currently the cost of a return air fare is £980 for non serving and £260 for serving. Depending on the nature of this expedition, fare and accommodation costs may be helped with a grant. Details later when know.

Interest through these pages please.

Umm, slightly more than in jeopardy - it's cancelled. I have just received a very helpful e-mail from Martin Routledge with the whys and wherefores from the MOD perspective and the message is not good with the possibility of a double whammy due to the US wishing a total refurbishment in a year's time.
Don't hold your breath.
