UK Airfield Visit

Donnington Grove Country Club, Newbury – Saturday 5th January 2019 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

a very enjoyable morning was spent at the Icicle Refrozen Balloon Meet in the lovely grounds of Donnington Grove Country Club in Newbury. It was great to see lots of old faces and to also meet some new ones. The light conditions were not the best but the wind speed was perfect and hence a much bigger launch than normal from here was seen.
