TURWESTON FLY IN
A total of 21 Rotarians and friends attended the first IFFR fly-in of 2017.
The weather was bright in the South although with a Southerly airflow
Turweston had a tricky crosswind with the grass runway out of action.
Some 8 aircraft attended with the furthest prize going to Past World President James Alexander from Cark who left in challenging conditions. 3 crews attended by car. The new tower boasted an impressive panoramic restaurant. After lunch we were treated to a hangar tour seeing old and new aircraft in the process of restoration or repair.
A nearly completed Hurricane was pride of exhibits. Plain to see was the fuel tank just forward of the windscreen; perhaps the only design fault of the fighter which won the Battle of Britain.
Peter Jude was welcomed as the new Chairman and all crews returned safely.
