Turweston Air-Britain Fly-in 19 June 2021

Post by LondonEye » Tue Jun 22, 2021 6:36 pm

Some pictures from the Air-Britain Classic Fly-in at Turweston.

A big thank you to Phil Kemp and all the AB volunteers who make this happen.

Held in line with Covid guidelines, it was a welcome return towards some normality.
Weather was not kind, but still a reasonable number of visitors, and chance to check based aircraft.
I enjoyed my day.

First some visitors.

Lovely as usual, to see the Beagle Pup prototype.

Finally, this was puzzling a few. Not a Rallye, but the Polish PZL-110 Koliber. A metal plate under tail revealed G-BZLC.

You are right there, that was some among the circa 22500 steps done on Saturday. Much less on Sunday as it was unfortunately a wash-out.

Thanks for the pictures Pete, never manged a single photo all weekend.

LE, thanks for some classics . One favorite caught my eye , as the reg. seemed a tad familiar .. Going to the Air Brit 'fotos virtually confimed it .
Diving , not into the attic , they've been promoted to spare room wardrobe.... to retrieve the stack of logbooks .
Into the first ..
Yes , August 1971 , GASZB . I flew her from Felthorpe a few times ; last in 1974 .. was laid off in '75 , so no spare dosh or time .
GINFO also gave more details that she'd been a Marshalls of Cambridge 'Boid until Spring '71 . I'd only just missed her , being a Marshall's 'Boi in July '71.
Only one of 4 Marshalls 150s from then is still going , G-ATMC . Still looking good and passing through Compton Abbas regularly , despite the dents I must have inflicted on her 50 years ago .

rgds condor .
