Re: D-EXMZ Siai Marchetti SF.260 Air to air pics over Essex 07-07-2019

Nice to see some air to air pictures. Was your lucky day !
Always liked the SF-260, so streamlined. The military versions certainly look the part as a ' fighter'.

What did you go up in ?

Air Britain Turweston 22-6-19

As others have reported elsewhere, a very nice day, and only £5 entry. The weather was lovely. Attendance, both by air and car was up compared to the last few years at North Weald. The weather obviously helped, but maybe a more central location has helped AB. A good opportunity to say a big Thank Yo...

Booker Aeroexpo 15-6-19

Aeroexpo 2019 at Booker (Wycombe Air Park) was fairly similar to last few times with about 50 aircraft in exhibition area. Typically, Cessna, Cirrus, Piper, Robinson, Tecnam, Diamond etc. Saturday was overcast, with rain after midday. Aprox 60 - 70 visiting aircraft. For me, the two Swiss were most ...

Re: Mojave Boneyard, 26.03.19

It's one thing to know there are plenty of frames for storage / scrap, but that last picture brings it home.
Must have been exciting, yet frustrating not getting the flight.
Thanks for posting.

Dakota's at Duxford 4-6-19

Rare opportunity to see 23 Dakota's in one place. Found it to be an evocative occasion. Weather not kind for Tuesday, parachute drop canx. Any Wednesday folks visiting will get sunnier pictures. Here are the ones in civil colours, and the parachutists. Pete, https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48007...

Re: spotter friendly?

No access main terminal near control tower. So, follow the main road past end of runway and turn in at roundabout to park at the Lookout Café. You can no longer go up the back road past hangars due to security barrier. The café is the only viewing area, please buy something, the food & coffee is fin...
