Hi Brian, Can't put a face to your name. I first went to Upavon on 9th July 1961 and was active in the club until mid November, as I was stationed at waterbeach and started flying at Duxford then.

Hope you are well and still flying. Chris (micro)

re: Moonrakers Soaring Club, RAFGSA

Reply to @ChrisM: We must have met. I went solo during that year. I was introduced by fellow Hull guys Colin Wray and David Ellis. We were on Fitters (Wireless and Radar) courses at Yatesbury. I hope you see this blog, as I see your entry is back in 2011! I remember one day, flying was suspended when some Groupie came with his autogiro and gave a demo. I understand it was used by him in Bond films. Brian Norton.

Great Airport Beats Manchester and London Airports

This is a great airport to fly from, good people good facilities and good choice of scheduled and charter flights. Airport not to blame for luggage delays they do not provide luggage staff the airlines do.

viewing aircraft!

Hi there, I would like to know where you can watch planes safely without breaking the law or interfering with the airport security and police?

I have found 1 or 2 places. 1 is on the footbridge 117 over the railway line just to the north of the airport between Horley and Gatwick. 2 is also on a bridge 120 by the perimeter road (A23). On the footpath between Charlwood and Ifield Hall by the approach lights. Lastly another up on the hill by Russ Hill Hotel near Ifield Windmill. I hope this helps people!?

Propeller Inn is Fab

Flew into Bembridge yesterday with the Miss's. Had an absolutely 1st class meal at the Propeller - it's a must do. Sea Bass and Duck - just delicious. And only £15 to land. Beats the alternatives.

Landing on 04

If your in a low wing and trying to land on 04, then you need to hit the threshold, or you sink rate = the slop of the runway!!!

Try not to stamp on the breaks too!

Visit

Hello Phil,

My name is Roy Chapman. I live in Bournemouth.

On Friday I will be travelling to Cornwall for the Porthtowan fly in. ( I will be travelling by road).

I would be very grateful if someone could spare me 5 minutes in order to view the aircraft at Pymore.

Many thanks in advance.

No longer there

This airstrip no longer exists. The area is now being developed as an industrial park similar to that immediately to the east.

Great Cafe and a cheap date for kids

Great place to feed kids and you can legally stand on the footpath at the threshold of runway 06 which is fabulous fun especially if that's the runway in use.

New British Airways service to Aalborg and Billund

The British Airways franchisee, Sun-Air of Scandinavia, are introducing a new Danish route from Humberside Airport on 17th April 2016. It will operate to Aalborg and Billund on Sundays and Fridays until the autumn of 2016, when a third rotation is planned. There are hopes that further rotations will be added next year.

Scampton surprize !

Is the site of the RAF Fire Fighting Museum. Need to watch for open days or organise a trip. See the equipment and crash Trucks that kept the aircraft able to fly from WW1 through WW2 and today, really well presented museum and the vehicles are amazing - because my father drove one the Alvis Mk6 is my favourite and excellently presented.

There's an aircraft (glider?) visible on the runway if you zoom in.

Listed separately from RAF Breighton

Although this airstrip is immediately adjacent to the (now closed) RAF Breighton, it uses a separate runway from the original, which is still visible.

Picture of Jan_Olieslagers

Confusing situation...

This is the western part of the former RAF base, including the North-South runway. It is operated by the Ouse Gliding Club. The Eastern part is operated separately by the "York Flying Club".

RAF Bisterne

Now long disused, this airfield formed part of the Airfields of the New Forest during WW2. It was a temporary airfield mainly for the protection of the ports along the South Coast and for interdiction strikes into German held Europe prior to the Nomandy Landings. Very little remains today

History

Cricklewood Aerodrome was built in 1912 to support the Handley Page factory in Cricklewood, London, England. Handley Page Transport operated service to Paris from here until merging into Imperial Airways in 1924. The airfield was closed in 1929. Currently the area is built up almost completely with residential homes. The original reception hall and some of the Handley Page aircraft factory still remain as commercial real estate.

Hilton to open a hotel on the Humberside Airport site

The first hotel at Humberside Airport was opened as recently as 2010. It is called Nightel and was designed specifically for people working on the North Sea gas field production rigs (which are serviced by fleets of helicopters from the airport). It has been so successful that the operators are building a new hotel for use by the general public. It will carry Hilton branding and is due to be opened in mid 2016.
