Back in 1991 I flew out of this air strip in one of my friend's J-3's, I recall using the roundabout to line find the runway.
When I was an RAF Air Cadet I flew a DHC Chipmunk from 'RAF Filton'.
When I was an RAF Air Cadet I attended a week long course here, flying the Grob 103 (Viking) glider, being aero-towed by a Robin DR400 (with a four blade prop for quite operations).
Back in 1987 I attended an Air Cadet camp here at RAF Brawdy. Got to fly in a Seaking from 202 Squadron B flight. Great times!
Back in 1987 I flew a DHC Chipmunk from RAF St.David's while attending an Air Cadet camp at RAF Brawdy.
Back in 1999 I was traveling to Australia for business. I managed to spend some time visiting Cairns. I flew up from Sydney on a 747-SP, walked down the jet stairs on to the apron - cool! Then later on in the week I rented a C172, VH-WHK, along with an instructor to fly up the coastline sight seeing. Amazing! I also was amazed to see an HF radio in this C172 - but this made sense, since you are often in the outback. Great times - I hope it is still the same or better.
