Turweston and London Luton 14th July 2019

The weekend of the British Grand Prix, is always a great weekend for aviation, and when the Grand prix coincides with the Wimbledon mens final, its even better. Race sunday is a great day for helicopter movements, with numerous machines operating to the circuit. Prior to the race commencing, the airspace around the circuit is closed to allow the red Arrows to perform, and as a result many helicopters position from Silvertsone, to the nearby airfield of Turweston. This makes for quite a spectacle and is always worth a visit. The airfield also attracts fixed wing aircraft and is home to several maintenance facilities. An airside walk is usually also arranged for a small contribution to the local air ambulance charity which enables some up close photos of the aircraft. It was typical British summer weather unfortunately, with overcast skies and occasional rain showers. the sun did appear later though.


Above: Hundreds of Enthusiasts walk the line of Helicopters.

After Turweston, it was then a trip to Luton, to catch the additional movements allied to both the Grand Prix and Wimbledon final.


Hangers were left partially open to allow enthusiasts to see inside which was appreciated. The restoration hanger had a list of occupants affixed outside for even more convenience.
