Air Britain, White Waltham Saturday 17 June 2023

Post by TJJ »

I went to Air Britain's 75th anniversary fly-in at White Waltham on Saturday. With a three-hour trek each way, I wasn't there all day, but still met up wth some old friends from my North Weald days. The highlight was the immaculate Sidney Cotton Electra G-AFTL and a very nice Fairchild.

Nice to see some pics from you buddy. I remember BIFY at Weald and completely agree, that’s an awful ‘livery’. On the other hand, the Electra looks superb.

Nice selection of shots and variety of aircraft. I was thinking of going, then decided that 2.5 hours each way was a bit much for my "secondary" aviation interest! Not sure if that was the right decision. Bring it back to North Weald again!
