Henstridge CFO Flyin


Here's a quick report on the Henstridge Cardinal Flyin, June 8, 2003:

On a blustery and stormy day in Somerset, seven Cardinal enthusiasts gathered at the Henstridge Airfield.

Lou Miller and Colin Fisher had the cooperation of the airfield manager but not the weather, as winds gusted to over 35 knots and the rare British lightning sparked on the horizon. They had made the trip from their home base of Blackbushe but metrological conditions literally put the damper on much further activity. Frank and Mary Porath appeared, dressed in CFO shirts, but arriving in a SAAB (automobile) from Nottingham, their 70FG left behind in the USA.

Henstridge is, like many British airfields, originally a military base, in this case used by the Fleet Air Arm for training of naval aviators. A center section of the runway, the length of an aircraft carrier deck, is reinforced for dry land practise, but on this day was not particularly dry.

Midafternoon, after a half-hour detour around the thunderstorms, Brian Lowther, Richard Hadfield, and Didier Keller braved the winds and arrived from Denham.

Both Cardinals were very well kitted out with dual GPS and other electronic goodies, and admittedly looked rather smart parked side-by-side.
