Anyway back to business , we head off past Windsor to the A303 eventually arriving at a wind and rain swept Blackbushe, and not an aircraft to be seen on the apron ( a far cry from the British Eagle days). A polite request to the friendly controller gets us permission to drive round the taxyway to the far side of the airfield , as long as we promise not to drive on the runway, and give way to any aircraft. Arriving outside the hangar we find parked in the long grass a number of ex Royal Navy WS51 Dragonfly Helicopter's in various states of disrepair.
Moving on down the A303 we arrive at an equally rain swept and deserted Thruxton, with not a person to be seen during our visit, but parked out are the remains of several Avro Anson C21's unfortunately with all identity removed. The Anson being of particular nostalgia to me having seen the formation of 5 Anson's practising for the farewell flypast when they were withdrawn from service with the Metropolitan Communications Squadron at RAF Bovingdon a couple of years previously.
And so as the Gazelle heads slowly up the single carriageway of the A303 we say say goodbye to Roger and Reggie till next time.
P.S. if you would like to feed the fish, just left click some food into the pond.
