Weston – Sunday 24th March 2019 (John Tomlinson)

First port of call was Weston, Co Kildare.

A friendly chat with security and management confirmed a ramp tour, as well as a drive across the field, to where the old airport was, plus a few older aircraft.

Looked like the old AIRBASE Percival P.66 Pembroke C.1 has moved from Coventry~Warks recently and now looking good at it’s new location.
