Spanhoe Airfield Photocall II

at Windmill Aviation, Spanhoe Airfield, Corby NN17 3AT


Back by popular demand, Windmill Aviation have very kindly agreed to once again wheel out the 'Desford Trainer' and throw open the gates to their Spanhoe base. 

Alongside the recently-flown Reid and Sigrist RS.4 will be a selection of based and visiting aircraft, including Fokker S-11 G-BEPV/174 and Beagle Husky G-AWSW/XW635.

Having fallen foul of the weather at our February event, we are hoping that the country's two Fairchild Arguses will both be present and that former RAE Bedford Radio Flight Auster AOP.9 G-AZBU/XR246 will be joining us from Tollerton.

The aircraft will be positioned with photography in mind for a photocall, before the sun sinks below the horizon and we bring out the floodlights for a night photography session.

Additional aircraft are still to be announced, all participation is subject to weather and serviceability. Aircraft listed will be available during the day photoshoot. Aircraft available after sunset for the night photoshoot will be denoted with an asterisk (*).

Once again, there will be two ticketing options, which allow for access to the 'day only' and 'day and night' elements of the event, giving those interested in serials a more cost-effective option to the 'full' ticket.

Money raised from this event will be donated to The Air Ambulance Service, which covers the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Rutland.

Please note that there is a large amount of rough, grassy ground at Spanhoe airfield. We will endeavour to ensure that walkways are marked and as smooth as possible, but we cannot be held responsible for any injuries or damage caused whilst on rough ground.
