UK Airfield Visit

North Weald – Saturday 19th November 2016 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,
Airway UL9 group leader (thanks Barry) arranged for a visit to
North Weald Aviation Heritage, so Saturday past, a number of us over-the-top
spotters assembled at this famous old Essex airfield which is celebrating
its 100th birthday this year. It was a nice flying day (calm before the
storm) and many hangars were open for inspection around the airfield. I hung
around after the Aviation Heritage hangar visit as I found out that Gnat
G-MOUR was to fly out and very nice it was to watch too :)…….
