Scone 22 Apr. Almost back to normal

The airport operator has reduced the landing fee for visiting GA aircraft to just £2 until the end of the month, which has brought in a few visitors and maybe more when the Touchdown cafe re-opens on Monday.

Scone 13 Apr 21, from the office

Shot through the office window with the 230m mm lens, so nothing that great but it was sure nice to see a bit of life about the place.

Re: Berlin-Gatow - December 2019

Gatow is one of my favourite museums, thanks for rekindling the memories once more. I'd go back again given the chance.

It did also strike me of the presence of the Swastikas on the WW2 aircraft and the exceptions to historical accuracy by the German authorities.

Re: Scone 17 Oct 20

Scone (Skoon) or Perth Airport, is the largest GA field in Scotland, with three runways to play with; two hard and one grass, which is usually unavailable in the winter due to waterlogging.

How to put the content into the context and not end up with the photo of the underside of a Spitfire with no relation to where it was taken... and this one was a failure.
