I almost feel guilty posting this due to my fellow Canadian’s getting the real cold. It feels a lot like Autumn still here. I’m actually considering driving 5 hours this weekend to go get properly cold.
That b200 was a lovely thing! You don’t see too many round here. He flew off as my food was arriving and it was a lovely sight.
Beautiful little airport and great facilities there. Busier airspace than I would of thought as well. The bar was packed with spotters as well which was amusing.
11 quid to land can’t be sniffed at though when you get entry to the museum included apparently
It is funny how in the UK you get a lot of ‘spotters’. There is a passionate interest in aviation in the UK. Over here in the States, aviation is far more common, with most modest sized towns having a municiple airport. Despite that, there seems to be less interest from the general public. It seems kind of backwards.
I noticed there are quite a few spotters in New Zealand too.
When I was in the RAF I used to keep a book of tail numbers and would check off each airframe as I saw it. I guess spotting is just in the British DNA . I draw the line at trains though and I will never admit to having once owned an Anorak. Nope, never had one .
