Serious Flying.......
.......Should be Fun!

Bumbling about - 28.08.04: Beccles then Old Buckenham

We had planned to go to Shoreham to visit Transair, but there was an Airshow on.

So we took a look at the map and given we didn't have all day (Ian had to be back by 2pm),

we decided on Beccles then a hop to Old Buckenham for Lunch.

'Orsett Village' - New Development on the land sold off by Orsett Hospital

And then VFR to Colchester then Ipswich

After calling Beccles, G-BN joined overhead and G-SE routed toward the coast

before turning to make a straight in approach for 27

Finals for 27 Beccles

The boys make their way to C


Did you know Paul and Rob went to Courchevel last weekend and got their rating?

John didn't....

After a swift coffee we set off for Old Buckenham

and landed runway 25

Checking in....for £20 you get unlimited visits for a year!


Waiting for our Mustang Burgers - Pauls crisps had already arrived.

Ian managed to get his AFE book from the pilot shop at Old Buckenham, so the original goal was achieved.

G-BN departed 20 minutes before G-SE to get Ian back to Thurrock on time

Both Beccles and Old Buckenham are well worth a have to have a Mustang burger!
