Canary country circular tour 19-04-2019, final stage - Priory Farm, Tibenham

Post by andygolfer » Sun Apr 21, 2019 2:20 pm

our last stop of the day. Priory Farm is about a mile to the west of Tibenham airfield about 43 miles west of the A140. Bob was expecting us and spent an hour or so showing us round all the hangars and workshop and a wide variety of aircraft - brilliant! Some were packed in a bit tight so I couldn't get photos of everything but Nigel who was with me got a full log here and best we could manage at the other venues. He has published all the day's logs on my google group 'UK Light Aviation Enthusiasts'

I've really enjoyed looking through your posts Andy, it's amazing what's tucked away in the hangars around Norfolk. :) :thumbs:

thanks for the comments, it was a very good day out and we found some very interesting subjects. It was a shame that some were tucked away in hangars in unphotographable positions.

We covered a lot of miles too- about 250 partly because i got lost on the way to Northrepps when I silenced the lady on the sat-nav to listen to the football :grr:
