Sywell Aerodrome is the home of the largest gathering of aeroplanes outside of the United States in the form of the annual LAA Rally. In 2017, there were more aircraft movements at the 2017 rally than at Heathrow. This means Sywell is the UK’s busiest airport for the weekend. Sywell is also one of the few locations in the country where one can take a flight in a Spitfire. I have seen the Spitfire G-CCCA which has the serial PV202 and markings 5R-H.

Sywell is also a busy aerodrome regardless of its Spitfire or LAA Rally. There are some photos below of both a normal day and from the LAA rally as it is such a defining event for the aerodrome.
