Remarks: Located on the site of the ex-RAF base is this tiny little farm strip airfield in Hertfordshire. I flew my C172 in for a bit of STOL fun and parked up to enjoy a few minutes of silence - the movements book in the hangar suggested I was the first visitor for 3 days!
Remarks: On final for RWY03 at Lydd battling quite a stiff cross-wind. Lydd is situated on the South Kent coast of the UK and you have to make a very short final approach due to a restricted area around Dungeness power station. Off in the distance the coast continues round toward Folkestone and Dover.
Remarks: Plenty on show here as we climb out from RWY28 at Manston. There's an old DAS DC-10, a NATO 707, 747-200 N309TD, EM135 Legacy EC-KHT, and over the back a dismantled 747 along with an MK DC-8. To the right of the frame is the old and rarely used terminal building
Remarks: Turning overhead and about to descend deadside for RWY03 at Lydd with a superb view over the airfield. There's plenty of aircraft on the ground on this sunny Winter's weekend, a PA28 is just about to arrive on RWY03.
