    I've driven past this place a few times and spotted some planes around the back through a hedge, but never got round to a visit until now.

    I was passing today with a non-member and the gates were open so we popped in to ask if we could have a look. Doesn't hurt to ask. The owner is an old farmer, who was also a pilot in his time with around 500 hours of flight time - as a hobby. He's a private collector, and these have been bought over time from the MOD, since it was that or scrap them.

    He was very happy to let us take some photos, and was quite knowledgeable about the local aero history. Apparently just down the road at Defford there was one of the major Radar development sites during WW2, for example.

    We didn't want to take the piss and try and climb up into any of the cockpits, cool as that would have been, and I don't know much about aircraft so please ask someone else what they all are :p

    All in all there were about 7, maybe 8 planes there. It was pretty overgrown so we couldn't exactly move freely, but still a very interesting way to enjoy the sunshine :)

    Thanks for reading :thumb
