RAF Abingdon

Recommended Posts


I don't know if you can help.

On Sunday 3 March a powered para sail lifted from a field close to Abingdon airfield it was identifiable by its union flag sail. It flew around the airfield at times within a few hundred metres of the boundary and between 300 and 400 ft in height.

The problem is it was witnessed by CFS and CAA visitors. Both teams have had a sense of humour failure.

The CAA are discussing involving the Police and taking legal action ?

I will prevent this.

If you know him what I want in future is for him to phone the VGS on prior to him lifting so that we both know what he is doing or I cannot protect him.

Hope all well with you.

This email I recieved from the OC at abingdon who is a friend of mine does not make good reading .. Shame on you the pilot .
