The reason the H & E field is now a boating lake, is that is became a gravel pit..
I, lived in Broxbourne from 1950 to 1968 and knew several people who flew there. I also met Neville Browning later in Norfolk and clearly remember his fatal crash. The weather was a bit claggy and he wanted to give the crowd a show as the cloudbase was a bit low for most. A pilot friend was there and thought he lost it from lack of a horizon. Was the engine failure from the accident report?

My dad, Mr. J. B. Bayas, did his first solo here between July 1 to July 15 1936, and became a flying member of the Club. He then joined Govt. of India as a civil servant. I would like to get any information on him.

Crikey, Bayas, that's a heck of a long time to be airborne on your first solo!
