The organisation and barbeque tent was the hub for the day's activities.

   

 

 

 

 

Amidst the growing crops the airstrip had been cut the day before and was marked out with identification letters.

   

 

 

 

 

Time to go home! After popping in for the morning, the crew of the Slingsby T.67M-260 Firefly depart. In the centre the Jodel D117 arrives.

   

 

 

You would never imagine the day began with dark cloud and scudding rain!

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the area around the Airfield Group's tent.

 

Note how the RAF flag is being bent over by the force of the wind! (top-left) With some memorabilia and books, the Airfield Group have been advertising their drive to accumulate funds to complete the museum on the airfield site ... that will have access from Langham Lane half a mile to the south of its junction with Park Lane. Bottom right sees Chris Stanfield and Robin Gooding enjoying the sunshine, as was the author when not taking photos!

I used Martyn Steggals aircraft photo collection for recognising these private aeroplanes.
