Classics, Classics, Classics - Turweston 28th July

To coincide with the Silverstone Classic car festival and to mark the arrival of Chiltern Classic Flight, Turweston is holding a fly-in for European Classic aircraft on 28th July.

Landing fees for fly-in aircraft will be reduced to £5 with both Avgas and UL91 available.

Our normal Sunday hours will be extended and we look forward to seeing a great variety of types. We came up with the following list of types from across Europe, can you think of any other possibilities?
From Auster to Zlin via Bolkow, Bucker, Cap, Comper, de Havilland, Druine, Extra, Fokker, Jodel, Klemm, KZ, Miles, Morane-Saulnier, Nord, Pilatus, Percival, Siai-Marchetti, Stampe, Tipsy, Wassmer and Yak.

See the website or your flight guide for airfield details.

Thanks to all those who turned up on Sunday. A great turn out of people for so few aeroplanes. Horrible gusty crosswind put most pilots off and in the end the only true 'European' classics we counted were, coincidentally, the Pup G-IPUP and SAL Bulldog G-CBCB.
Thanks go to the other hardy souls who flew in especially the pilot of G-KELZ who had the most interesting landing of the day just as it gusted nearly 30 knots across the grass.
Nice also to see Paul Morton out and about with his camera - hopefully getting a few shots for the magazine.

See you all perhaps in September for the Vintage Aircraft Club fly-in.
