New Years Fly-in
Henstridge Airfield is once again holding a fly-in on New Year’s Day, with Bangers and Mash, Beans or Onion gravy at £5 a head. “A slight increase from last year mainly due to the strength of the pound and rising cost of French onions,” said Geoff Jarvis, airfield manager.
Henstridge is also offering free landings and reduced price for fuel during December and to January 2, 2017. If you are usually based at a waterlogged airfield, there is also an offer for free tie down at Henstridge’s large hard apron.
There is free tea and coffee from December 26 to January 2, and during the same period, a free breakfast for any one uplifting 100 litres in this period, reclaimable any weekend in January.
