As I’ve been busy with work recently, I haven’t really had the chance to get out and go to the airfield. I therefore decided to rectify this today by getting on my bike and doing two.
As I haven’t been to Hinton-in-the-Hedges before, I decided to do this first, taking an unnecessarily long route thanks to Strava’s route planner, but I won’t moan too much, as it was actually quite a nice set of quiet roads with only a couple of big hills dotted around the countryside.
I then decided to pop across to Turweston, taking the main road between Hinton Airfield and Hinton village, which includes a nice stretch of road through a field with gates on both sides, which are not the easiest to navigate without getting off one’s bike!
These were the aircraft I saw:

|G-BSJX||1981||Piper||PA-28-161 Warrior II|
|G-CIRI||2007||Cirrus||SR20 G2 GTS|
|G-DDOG||1973||Scottish Aviation||Bulldog Series 120 Model 121|
|G-GALA||1970||Piper||PA-28-180 Cherokee E|
|G-WARV||1998||Piper||PA-28-161 Warrior III|
