Bruntingthorpe Cold War Jets Collection

Despite the loss of the runway at Bruntingthorpe for taxi runs, the collection remains largely intact and we have been invited to spend a morning looking at the aircraft at close quarters – Lightning, Hunter, Venom, Canberra, Buccaneer and more. We might just get lucky and get an engine run but no promises!

Cost will be £10-15 as a donation to the collection and the visit will start at 10.00.

Rolls Royce Derby Heritage Centre and Black Magic restoration

In the morning we enjoyed a tour of the Rolls Royce Heritage Centre in Derby and since we were in the area, it seemed like a good idea to call in at Derby Airfield to see how the “Black Magic” Comer racer project is progressing.
