Booker – Saturday 18th May 2024 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

As the Abingdon Air Show had been postponed/cancelled, I had some Saturday free time. The weather didn’t look great with thunderstorms building up in the West of the UK and so I opted to wait until late afternoon to make my visit to the Private Flyer event at Booker. Given the weather, I wasn’t convinced that there would be lots of visitors for the Air Britain Fly-in and I figured that by going later, it would be easier to take photographs of the static area without people around as the event closed down.

Whilst wandering around, I bumped into an old friend of mine who I also used to work alongside many, many years ago. He now flies out of Booker as he looks to keep building his hours up – I’m now looking forward to getting a ride out of Booker soon!
