Some more pics from Tuesdays day out. I was walking through a corn field not far from Thorpe Salvin, when I heard a buzzing overhead. Aha, Netherthorpe Airfield is close by.
Quick, take a picture. The camera is in a pouch around my waist, always at the ready.
There it goes, into the distance.
The track I was on came out on a road, so I walked towards the wind sock at the entrance to the airfield. I found a viewing area with a picnic bench. A good place to sit and eat my crisps and watch the little aircraft coming and going. I wouldn't mind going up in one of those.
I've had a look at the web site, it costs £80 for a trial flight. Sheffield Aero Club offer lessons for those wanting to get a licence. This has to be booked in advance of course.
I made a short video of an aircraft taking off, please excuse wobbles.
It's been raining today so I have not been able to get outside and carry on with the garage project. I am getting on with the sewing. It keeps me busy.
Have a nice weekend. Catch ya tomorrow. Toodle pip. ilona
