Northern Aviators Club Flyin at Springhill Today 27-2-2021

Springhill airfield just South of Wellsford has been closed for several years following the death of its previous owner and the machinations of the Overseas Investment Office who eventually approved the sale of the wider property to Chinese interests who propose to site a landfill nearby, much to the displeasure of the locals.

However the airfield is not part of the landfill site and due to the efforts of Tim Harrison the airfield has now been re-opened as a private airfield, and the Northern Aviators Club held the first post opening flyin and BBQ at the nice facilities today. Please note if you want to use the airfield you need to get prior permission from Tim Harrison.

There was a great turn out of around 25 aircraft to celebrate the occasion and the scones with jam and cream, and the BBQ went down a treat:

Peter Armstrong taxying out past the clubhouse in his Dyn Aero MCR 4S ZK-PSA, bound for Ardmore.

And last to leave was Ian Chapman in his Vans RV 6 ZK-VNZ, bound for North Shore.
