Re: Current aircraft being restored to flight

ZK-AVM is a Grumman Widgeon, not a Westland (which is a pre-war monoplane, an entirely different aeroplane type altogether). A Grumman Widgeon is an amphibian, not a flying boat.

You’re completely missing the point. In the past, traffic approaching from the Royston end is directed to turn right in...

In previous events this year they've used the area around the Catalina and in front of hangar 3 as overspill parking. I guess we'll just have to wait and see

The Norwegian CF-104D hasn’t flown for a few years now and I believe there are still unresolved seat issues to solve before it flies again.

Unlikely in the case of the Hind, as anyone who takes it on will need to cover the transport costs from Pima.

Re: Old Warden Race Weekend Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October

Standard pricing for Old Warden events this year. Up until a couple of months ago there was a further £10 on top for a parking space but they’ve done away with that now.
