New group and welcome visitors

posted in: Airshows, Blog, Visitors | 0
We are pleased to welcome a new group to Welshpool - the Charlie Sierra Bravo Delta Group, flying a very nice Piper PA28-236 Cherokee Dakota. Welcome to you all!
 
We were also visited by a special 1940 built Cessna 165 Airmaster G-BTDE. Plus, Aerobatic Champion Lauren Richardson arrived in this Cirrus SR20. If that name sound familiar, it's because Lauren is now an airshow regular - you can see her at the Bob Jones Memorial Air Show on 11 June 2017.

Military visitors

We were delighted earlier in the month to get a visit by an Aerospatiale SA330 Puma from the Royal Air Force, refuelling on the way back to RAF Benson. Not to be outdone, the Royal Navy sent in, not just one but two AugustaWestland EH101 Merlins. Now we are just waiting for the Army to pop in to tick them off our list!

RAF Valley recently celebrated the end of the RAF Search and Rescue operations. As part of the celebrations, they invited Andrew Whitehouse to bring his Westland WS-55-3 Whirlwind HAR 10. We are delighted that Andrew stopped by at Welshpool for fuel, allowing us to join in the celebrations.

Autumnal Aviators

We are pleased to welcome a new member to our family - Al Roberts has become our newest resident with his Jabiru UL-450.

In addition we have had many visitors including a pair of SIAI Marchetti SF 260, one still with its previous markings.

Of course, this time of year brings some very spectacular helicopters for the shoots. Below we feature two Eurocopter EC135s and an August A109.

Piper PA-46 Malibu

Piper PA-46 Malibu

Thanks to Jamie Brown for spotting this Piper PA-46, picking up a passenger on the way to Belgium. The Malibu has set several speed records in the US and with a cruise speed of 196kn (226mph, 363 kmh) it should be back in Belgium in no time!

Royal Danish Air Force

We recently had a visit from the Royal Danish Air Force. Thankfully this time it wasn’t a viking invasion and this friendly bunch replaced their longboats for a pair of SAAB T-17s.
Velkommen!
