I have just joined this group having been an SLK owner here in the UK since 2004. First I had a 2003 model year SLK 320; that was nice enough but in August 2005 I was lucky enough to find a 2003 SLK32 AMG with only 8000 miles since new - complete with designo interior. 63000 miles and almost 10 years later and it's still my daily drive! It's been to Lake Constance 3 times (or rather the Bodensee as the Germans term it) - so I've seen double the UK speed limit quite legally and without drama!


On a personal note, I retired from the RAF in the rank of Sqn Ldr in 2003, having spent 35 years poling aircraft in HM's flying club - the usual training stuff (Chipmunk, Jet Provost, Gnat, Hunter) plus tours on the Vulcan, Phantom and VC10K. I've also done some PPL-level instruction and examining, but not right now as I'm helping AOPA with the mysteries of €urocratic pilot licensing.


Still working though - what's this 'retirement' thing?

Thank you for your service!!!

If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.

New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome, it is always an honor to say Hello to someone who has served in their countries military. Thank You! In my family, it is the wife who is the pilot, she was also a flight instructor back in the late 1970s in Canada, at the PPL level. She still flys, and maintains her IFR rating, in our Piper Mirage. While I do love to sit up front in the Mirage, and go well over 200 knots, at FL240, driving the SLK on the twisty mountain roads is a bigger thrill.

She might disagree. :wink:

Welcome aboard! Good career... enjoyed my time at RAF Kinloss and St Mawgan. Ever bump into a W. Gregory (Puma type)?
