A Midlands Day Out 27/06/2015

Post by norwichmike » Tue Jul 07, 2015 11:41 am

Hi all,

Decided to do a little write up of a trip I made 2 weekends ago.

After my other half was put down to work a nasty 14 hour day (0800-2200) I decided to search for a trip to haul me some required G- Numbers. Having visited Coventry on numerous occasions but never really succeeded in getting any of my needs here we decided a visit to Classic Air Force was a need for me...

So alarm goes off at 05:00 and up I jump to prepare myself for the 06:23 Abellio Greater Anglia service from Cromer to Norwich. This rolled in on time and I boarded the class 156 DMU for the commute to Norwich. Then it was a quick switch onto a Class 170 Turbostar for a even shorter commute to Wymondham to meet up with Steve (The driver) for the trip to begin.

So off we set on a direct run to Coventry Airport via a customary stop at McDonald's for a quick Bagel to stop the rumbling of the tummy.

Arriving at Coventry a look around the perimeter before into the Airbase complex saw the following logged...

This is now free entry on weekends but we were more than happy to part with a couple of notes into the donation tin.

On leaving here it was up to Birmingham for a quick look from the Elmdon side. For the first time here we decided to try the multi story car park I had seen people mentioning. Quite a pleasant half hour up here logged a few and allowed a couple of photographs..

From here it was to another couple of airfields I hadn't visited in many years, located closely together near Alrewas. First stop was Roddige where we were escorted around the hangars. Only one photograph obtained as hangars too dark to bother with..
