Radials Trainers & Transport 2017 Halfpenny Green

Post by RS2 » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:03 am

Just a reminder for anyone heading to this event this weekend, this is not a stand alone fly in.
The Radial & Trainer Fly In is essentially part of the 'Wings' element of a Wings & Wheels Style Event.
As such there will be no airside access, anyone popping on a bib and trying to get airside or into closed off areas in hangars will be asked to leave.
Not only that but they will also be putting the future of the event in danger for everyone else.
The volunteer team at Halfpenny Green have gone to great lengths to create walkways and car park areas that offer great photographic opportunities.
Maps can be seen at http://www.halfpennygreenevents.co.uk but Im sure photographers will be heading for the corner of carpark 1 for unobstructed shots of aircraft turning off runway 16 onto the taxiway or of aircraft holding for 34 departures.
Alternatively the area around the pleasure flying AN2 and helicopter could offer unobstructed views of aircraft taxying head on towards parking down runway 22 or taxy way bravo.
And all these points with the sun behind.
Finally Autogyro UK are based at Halfpenny Green, from the event areas walkways have been created to their hangar and apron where they will be doing the UK launch of the new MTO, will be chatting to the public about gyros and how they work and will be offering trial flights.
Last minute info will be available on twitter at https://twitter.com/WHGAEVENT please tweet to us if you visit this weekend.
Finally please feel free to pass on and help us keep both airside and the future of the event safe.
