There’s little hiding the fact that I’ve not been to the airfield a lot recently. Unfortunately, I find that life gets in the way quite a lot, where life happens to also generally equal making sure I actually get the A-Levels I’m studying for. I was also off sport for a couple of months following a back problem which has now faded, so getting myself to the airfield on the bike has been difficult. However, a sunny January day beckoned and hid all thoughts of previous problems, so a trip to the airfield seemed like a good idea. So I did.
I’ve had quite a change camera-wise in the last few weeks as well, as I accidentally upgraded my camera body to the newer Nikon D7200 and bought myself a wide angle lens. (Yes I do have a Nikon D7000 for sale at the right price, drop me an email if you’re interested). As I hadn’t had a proper chance to give them a whirl, I decided today was a good day to get started.
It was by no means warm today, although it looked it. I had originally planned to go down to Hinton too, but was put off by the fact that the roads were very wet still at 11:15 from last night’s frost. Having had one bad fall on wet roads in the past, I am a bit cautious around them and so decided Turweston alone was the better plan.
Things were very busy, although I didn’t get most of the action as I was only there for about 40 minutes. Even in that time though, there was a fair bit going on and always at least one engine running.
