25 August 2007 - G-VFWE at Henstridge
The late August bank holiday Saturday always brings the Great Vintage Flying weekend group hosting the flyin at Henstridge.  Always a good day.  We were a little concerned to hear the early birds arriving at the airfield were reporting rather low clouds.  Anyway we gave it a go.  The clouds were not too bad as we approached and landed safely using a straight in approach for Runway 25

Upon arrival we took on fuel and parked and went over to sign in the BBQ was getting up steam

The number of classic cars were less than usual but never the less rather interesting

While walking round we bumped into an old friend Keith Blake from our Redhill days.  Martin and Keith spent a while catching up.  It was good to see him again.

We watched the jet model flying in between the full sized ones arriving and leaving

Everyone admires our aircraft registration, but I spotted another one quite fun.  G-IRAF

There were many planes that arrived during the day, many regulars and a few new ones.

Once again the day was a great one, meeting Keith and many other friendly people.  We look forward to the next flyin in at Henstridge.
