Ladies & gentlemen; WE'VE GOT HIM !

Finally we did find our hospitality bus which we were looking for a long time.
It’s a former UK city bus, a beauty, however it needs work, and we need YOUR help.


Our planning is to rebuild the bus into a luxury hospitality unit during the winter, so we can invite our Yakkes members and sponsors during airshows and events in the next years. Are you willing to be on that particular bus next year during events and airshows? Please help us in any way you can !

Overall the bus is in good condition, but we still need to rebuild the interior completely. The exterior will be painted in new colours.
