Classic Air Force at Newquay

During the first three days of the Bank Holiday weekend (still Monday to go) the new Classic Air Force visitor attraction at Newquay-Cornwall Airport, Britain’s only ‘living memorial’ to the aircraft of the 1940s and 1950s proved to be very popular.   It is open day (1 April) as well.  Dragon Rapide pleasure flights down to Land's End were constantly flown, the operation running at 100% load factor.

“We were absolutely delighted by the response which has been mostly from the locals”, said Chief Executive, Davie Paton.  “They are in fact our sales people for when the tourists arrive in the spring and summer.  It was also great to welcome the Dakota and Avro Anson and another de Havilland Rapide as base aircraft.  Our thanks must also go to our friends at RAF Valley whose Hawks just happened to use the former RAF St Mawgan for a training mission”.

Classic Air Force is part of the Newquay Cornwall Airport Aerohub on the A3059.  Newquay Airport (NQY) is served by Flybe from Gatwick and Manchester, and soon easyJet from London (Southend) and Liverpool airports.  Opening hours are on their website  www.classicairforce.com
