Re: Road Blocked??

I don't know that area very well but I visited the airport fire section earlier this month and the road beyond there does appear to be blocked by bollards but is still open for pedestrian access .
Hopefully someone local will confirm this ?

Re: Zeppelin steering wheel

You might be better posting your enquiry on Key Aviation Forums as there are a lot of knowledgeable people on there who may be able to help and even trade aeronautical relics too .

Carlisle open again ?

Looking at ADS-B , PA-32 G-KNOW looks to have been 'bashing the circuit' for quite some time although now showing as departing to the south .
Is the airport open to aircraft again or are they allowing non-landing circuit's and activity ?

Re: M3, two low loaders, Bristows colours

I replied to a similar post which appeared on the Airfields Group after I saw them travelling west bound on the M18 on Friday evening .
They were AW139s G-CHCV and G-SNSG which had been in storage in Humberside on their way to Fleetlands.
