UK Airfield Visit

Sandown & Membury – Saturday 5th September 2020 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

Had a very enjoyable day with my old work wingman, although today I was his wingman. He has gained many more flying hours since he took me up as his first passenger around three years ago.

We agreed a while ago to get together and go down to Sandown on the Isle of Wight, should Spamfield go ahead. We suffered one weather aborted attempt a few weeks back but today the weather was kind and so from Membury, off we set.

We flew down over the Portsmouth Navy Yard and saw HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Queen Elizabeth which are the two new Royal Navy Aircraft Carriers. A great day was spent watching the activity at Sandown, which had just over 100 visitors I’d guess.

Many thanks to Danial Subhani for making sure the event went ahead and it was great to meet Sid and Spike! ?

My photographs for Sandown can be seen at;

The requests for Sandown are for the identity of the contents of the hangar closest to the food serving area and for whatever the silver fuselage was in the hangar with G-SIZZ on the far side. It looked almost fighter (P-51 Mustang) type like?
