On Sunday 29/03/09 i was invited to have a flight in a DH Chipmunk EX RAF WD 390 Reg G-BWNK by Stewart Smith at Wickenby (EGNW) near Market Rasen Lincs.
The weather was Brilliant, wall to wall sunshine.
I was able to sit in the front seat which was a bonus as i wanted to take photo's, i was also allowed to fly the chipmunk in between taking the photo's.
We took off from Wickenby at around 11.40am & climbed to about 1500 feet, headed towards EX RAF Binbrook did a fly around the airfield so i could take photo's then headed off to the west towards Caenby Corner then turned south flew past Faldingworth then joined the circuit at Wickenby to land at 12.20pm.
What a nice plane to fly!!! I really enjoyed it & thanks to Stewart for allowing me a trip in this brilliant aircraft.
Here are some of the photo's i took of the flight & also of Mark Whitnall having his check ride & solo flight.
Wickenby is a nice & active airfield with very friendly club members.
Hope you like my selection.
