North Weald Airfield Community Day
(7 June 2011)
Sunday 5th June WZ507 took part in the North Weald Airfield
Community Day and made three flights during the event. The
first was an impromptu session to allow air to air photography
of the Royal Navy Historic Flight’s Sea Fury T.20, based
at RNAS Yeovilton and flown by Lt Cdr Chris Götke RN.
weather was far from perfect but the Vampire and Sea Fury,
in formation with a Jet Provost, made an impressive sight
as they passed over the airfield.
that day we also had the privilege to take Nigel Rose, a former
RAF pilot who flew Spitfires during the Battle of Britain,
for a flight in WZ507.
Judging by his reaction, he enjoyed the experience!
Our thanks to Glenn Allison, Matt French and Darren
Harbar for the above pictures.
