Flight Itinerary

Another classic former Raf Base which was disused but now is maintained and provided a great little airstrip. It is also home to some interesting aircraft including a nice example of a chipmunk for any old Air Cadets.

On the way, we will fly over the biggest bomb crater in the UK, RAF Fauld explosion. This was an ammunition dump which exploded and killed many people plus leaving a rather big hole!!! In total it is believed to have exploded nearly 4000 tonnes of explosives and could be heard in the south of England. It was one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions in the world!

Can possibly do 3 passengers subject to Weight & Balance. If you are a 1 person looking to book, please contact me beforehand as the price will vary. PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE BOOKING TO DISCUSS DATES / REQUIREMENTS
