UK Airfield Visit

Cheltenham Racecourse – Friday 13th March 2020 (John Tomlinson)

Our main target for the day and our regular visit to Cheltenham Races, but not for the Gold Cup!

41 different helicopters ones noted this year, however no Irish, very unusual. Maybe the coronavirus situation had something to do with it?

The fire service, for a voluntary charity contribution, escort the group of enthusiasts along the lines of helicopters in the landing area. It normally starts around 1400hrs and within 30 minutes you have all the photographs that you want.
