The VAC Autumn Fly-in brought a number of Moths, Jodels and most amazingly, blue sky! Originally I donned a coat but that was jettisoned at lunchtime along with my first camera battery. There were many aeroplanes and a disproportionately large number of French types including a Jodel D9 and Robin DR500. It was a mostly successful day with the only main problems coming from a Robin DR360 and a Jodel DR1050. The Robin suffered a puncture upon landing and had to park at the Bravo holding point until the fire Land Rover could come and help to move it. The Jodel, on the other hand, suffered a runway excursion upon landing and ended up facing the wrong way and in the long grass with everyone’s hearts racing.

We were also treated by a Cessna Citation Mustang, N42LJ which arrived from Munich before heading off to Conington later in the day. This was particularly special as it parked next to Pilatus PC-12, OY-RSE which came from Denmark on Friday and is staying for the weekend; perhaps it is attending Ferrari’s 70th birthday celebrations at Silverstone.

There were also a couple of Taylors, a Monoplane and Titch as they were celebrating their 50th birthday.
