Vintage Aircraft Club Fly-in Turweston 15 April 2023

Post by TJJ »

On Saturday the Vintage Aircraft Club held its annual fly-in at Turweston. Numbers were down on last year because of bad weather in the morning and the grass runway being unavailable. But there were still some nice aircraft too see.

Auster Arrow, G-BEAH

The Dragonfly G-AEDU also flew in and was parked next to the Beagle Pup prototype G-AVDF, which is based at Turweston

Other aircraft visiting included a rather smart Europa Monowheel, G-RONA

Home-based QAC Quickie Q2 G-BKSK was doing an engine run. This looks like a modern interpretatiion of the Flying Flea

The Guild of Aviation Artists were also invited along, and several members used the Bulldog XX537, G-CBCB, as their subject. I used to fly this aircraft, which is now based at Turweston, so it was great to be reunited again
