We took ‘433’ to Coventry today in preparation for its annual maintenance check. Leaving Inverness around mid-morning and arriving at RAF Leeming in Yorkshire about 1 hour and 10 minutes later. We were hosted by the visiting aircraft section, who swiftly arranged refuel, and invited us to snack on MOD biscuits! We waited a couple of hours for poor weather to improve, before continuing to Coventry. A flight of around 45 minutes, overflying the Newark air museum and Bruntingthorpe airfield on the way.
We arrived just before dusk, and left ‘433’ in the care of Heritage Air Services.
We expect to collect her again sometime in January.
