On my visits to Guernsey in recent years, cabbies would always point out the hotels that have closed down. I think there's only a fraction of the hotel beds on the island that there were in the 70's...

If you're still considering Blackbushe, take a look at Blackbushe Flying Group (https://www.eglk.co.uk/about)

Most of the fleet of 20-odd aircraft are based there, some very smart aircraft.

I recall an awful accident at Oxford in the early 90's when a light aircraft (PA28, I think) was flipped on short finals by the downwash from a large helicopter (S61, I think, which was operating...

As an ex "Oggie" (16 years served, at the other BZN-based Sqn, not Regt) I'd say to her to go for it and the opportunities it might present. I'm sure it's still true that she will get to do things...

There was some coverage a few weeks ago that it (G-EUNA) has gone for scrapping (at Twenthe in Holland) - at only 11 years old.

It does indeed seem that G-XATW will be joined by a second 321Neo,...

There was some news earlier in the week that a smaller aircraft would be leased (to replace the 32 Sqn 146's in the VIP role) so maybe this is it?

Flew back from ACE on one of the Air Atlanta ones. Loved the L1011 but that aircraft was a heap.

I remember the AA Cessna 421 (G-OBCA) and subsequently their 2 Beech 200's (I think G-KBCA was one of them) and Agusta 109 (G-HBCA?) being based at Blackbushe during the late 80's/90's.

Hoping to capitalise on what might be a staycation Summer I guess, as well as finding things for their fleet to do. Good to see though if true.
