20 May 2007 - G-VFWE Hullavington
The Great Vintage Flying Weekend was held at Hullavington this year and we were determined to attend on one of the days.
It had been very windy on Friday and Saturday, but Sunday looked like a great day with light winds and clear skies in the local area.  We were airbourne at just past ten o'clock and flew West along the Kennet and Avon Canal passing Devizes and Bath using the recommended Southern route passing Charmy Down and M4 Junction 18.
The landing pattern was well spaced with the choice of hard or grass runways.  The condition of the airfield was truly fantastic.
Many planes had clearly been there all weekend, brave and bold pilots are still about! The Dove was doing great business constantly flying passengers around the area.

It was good to see the entire flying fleet of Chrislea aircraft
