UK Airfield Visit

Cranfield – 9th June 2021 (John Tomlinson)

This place appears to be very different since I last visited. The road system has changed, many of the nooks a crannies are blocked and private parking is everywhere. I was used to going to the tower area in order to look over the field, however I could not find the correct routing to get to it. I am sure that you can. But time was moving on, noted what I could and moved on.
