Classics, Classics, Classics – Turweston 28th July To coincide with the Silverstone Classic car festival and to mark the arrival of Chiltern Classic Flight, Turweston is holding a fly-in for European Classic aircraft on 28th July. Landing fees for fly-in aircraft will be reduced to £5 with both Avgas and UL91 available. Our normal Sunday hours will be extended and we look forward to seeing a great variety of types.

From Auster to Zlin via Bolkow, Bucker, Cap, Comper, de Havilland, Druine, Extra, Fokker, Jodel, Klemm, KZ, Miles, Morane-Saulnier, Nord, Pilatus, Percival, Siai-Marchetti, Stampe, Tipsy, Wassmer and Yak.

As the weather is looking reasonable still for Sunday I hope we'll see a few people for our fly-in. Cafe opens at 10am. Access to the apron is pretty good (operational necessities not withstanding) and there are some good views available from each end of the runway.

Thanks to all those who turned up on Sunday. A great turn out of people for so few aeroplanes. Horrible gusty crosswind put most pilots off and in the end the only true 'European' classics we counted were, coincidentally, the Pup G-IPUP and SAL Bulldog G-CBCB. Thanks go to the other hardy souls who flew in especially the pilot of G-KELZ who had the most interesting landing of the day just as it gusted nearly 30 knots across the grass.
