Firstly, I would like to thank Mr Whelan for taking me to both Sywell and Turweston today. We went to Sywell this morning and were greeted by the arrival of G-CCCA, a Supermarine Spitfire doing a barrel roll. Knowing that Sywell does often have Spitfire activity, I did get a little bit excited!

We watched over the aerodrome from the Pilot’s Mess balcony, on which requires patience as the nearby trees are very annoying. My highlight came when we were leaving and I noticed a large, loud twin engine aircraft flying overhead. We both figured that he was landing and so I ran up to the balcony to take photos. It was 2 Excel Aviation’s Beech King Air arriving from the Dutch city of Maastricht. We also then noted the familiar Merlin growl from the Spitfire as she rolled and so waited for her subsequent arrival.

After leaving Sywell, we went to Turweston where I took photos of the aircraft around. It was not a very busy day however there were a few aircraft flying about. My Turweston highlight was Rotorsport UK Cavalon G-MRLS. She wears a very distinctive orange and brown livery which I really liked.

These were the aircraft I saw at Sywell (EGBK)
