Captain America

posted in: Blog | 0

While Captain America has many super powers, flight is not one of them. It is only right therefore that he keeps an aircraft at Welshpool. Captain America wasn't willing to talk to us about his secret mission but we have no doubt this incredible adventure was worth of a third film.

Thanks to Toby Jones for the photos.

Rollason D62B Condor

Rollason D62B Condor

This lovely D62 came to visit us to take in our sunny warm weather.

The Condor was developed by Norman Jones of Rollason Aircraft & Engines from an earlier French design. Proud of his independence and lack of government funding (and in no way taking a swipe at the French), Norman Jones painted onto one of his early Condors “This aircraft is British Made – Private Enterprise and No Taxpayers Money”.

Spring arrival

We are pleased to announce that Spring has finally arrived, and with it our apron is once again busy with visiting aircraft. Below is a selection of our recent visitors.
