Chipmunk & Bulldog Fly-in Halfpenny Green 29 June

Post by TJJ »

Wolverhampton Airport at Halfpenny Green hosted a fly-in of Chipmunks and Bulldogs on Saturday 29 May. This was also in support of a flypast for Armed Forces Day at the nearby National Memorial Arboretum by some of the visiting aircraft.

The aircraft were all parked in a dedicated area on the grass. The six Chipmunks and three Bulldogs for the flypast all taxied out together and took off as a stream of pairs and singletons, forming up overhead into three vics before departing for the Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire.

And very nice they looked too over the house en route to/from the memorial arboretum. Great stuff, got a real soft spot for both types, many happy hours in both.
