Friday at this year’s LAA Rally was an excellent day. The weather played ball, meaning that I could log the number of aircraft I did, 334. There was everything from the endless streams of Vans, (Neither Transits nor shoes), Jodels, and Europas to vintage and obscure types. There were incredible journeys, incredible aeroplanes, and for better or for worse, some incredible people. I was particularly pleased to see a single seat Jodel D9 flown all the way from Spain, a journey which I can imagine was daunting, with trips over water, mountains, and sparsely populated lands.

There were three visitors from my home base of Turweston, which were: G-AIXN, G-LXAA, and G-TATR. I think it is very nice to see that all three aircraft are of equal rarity in this country, being the only UK registered examples of each. G-TATR attracted much interest on Friday, and I would assume Saturday morning as well. It left early on Saturday, however, this was not to the detriment of many spotters, who came to Turweston before or after their visits to Sywell.

These were the aircraft I logged:
