Busy time at the airfield

New Year fly in
Everyone was absolutely delighted with the result of the fly in at Old Buckenham Airfield on Monday 2 January. The airfield was the talk of air traffic control stations everywhere and it was certainly one the busiest airfields in the East of England and probably the country as a whole.
The day was blessed with incredible weather and there was immense support from classic and military vehicle owners across the region. The Airfield has a full calendar of events in 2012 (details available online) and usually these include at least one fly in per month.
The big news from the Airfield is, of course, the return of the airshow. They have had enormous interest and have already booked half of the flying displays. The organisers aim to have one of the largest collections of classic and military vehicles assembled in years, including a runway parade during the day. It is highly recommend that you all put Sunday 24 June in your diaries now.
The cafe at the Airfield is under new management and there are plans for it to be open most of the week - and hopefully for seven days a week before too long.
