Gallery (2), The Airfield

- contains images associated with the airfield.   See also the AIRFIELD page.

Takeoff and landing videos from Hardwick runway one—three and three—one,
not in a B-24 Liberator but something just as cramped .... a Van's RV-9A.

It's NOISY! Click to START, click to STOP.

If the video does not load,
go directly to the YouTube site.

A few seconds of taxiing,
full throttle at 1 min 5 secs
and lift-off at about 1 min 20.

Takeoff from runway three—one (31).

Runway 3-1 heads northwest over the village of Fritton and the Three Nags pub run by Jimmy and Daisy Elmar during WWII. 
(See Preller's site for more about the pub. (The site is no longer maintained).

Spacer

Jimmy and Daisy Elmar were my grandparents. They and my mother Joan told stories of nights when the skies were filled with aircraft and how often the timber-framed pub shook as damaged low-flying aircraft limped back to Hardwick. I had the good fortune to fly the route over Fritton and back in Nov 2011. See opposite. The village and pub can be seen at about 2 mins 15 secs.

See also the 'off-camp' page.

Landing on runway one—three (13).

Thanks to Kelvin Woodard and his home-built aircraft, without whom these videos would not have been possible.

The Airfield, images from overhead

These images were found on a CD, they had been photographed and digitised from an original?
I have cropped that digitised image but no other editing for display here.
