Was going to go for a nice way to end the season but I can’t see much being able to even use the runway after the predicted rain in the morning and it’s looking a bit gusty too. A sad way to end the season but honestly the weathers been dire this year

Yep, I've decided to pass on this one too. Even if they don't get rain during the afternoon, the site must be soaked, and it looks too breezy for many of their items.

Looking forward to next year :smile:

Currently it's blue sky with sunshine and fluffy clouds in London. That's also the BBC forecast for Old Warden with some light rain. I think I'll give it a shot.

Sat at home, no rain, some sun. Far better than the forecast suggested. At the moment the doom and gloom forecast does appear to have been far too pessimistic.

Have a great day all of those who are at Old Warden.

A nice selection of interesting cars too, several of them fitted with aero engines.

Much of the flying was severely curtailed, but still a very pleasant afternoon out.
