A Visit to the Combined Ops Air display at Headcorn Aerodrome, Kent 15th & 16th August 2015. At the invitation of Phil Holt, the Flying Display Director for full size activity at Bygone Days and who visited us on Slim Gregory Day, Roger Palmer, a chap called Dennis and the writer flew from Hurn in a Robin, G-ROBN built in 1978, maintained and owned by former Fleet Air Arm officer, Ralph, owner of Airtime Ltd. The Robin has a Lycoming 180 engine and cruises at a bit over 100 knots. We departed Hurn at around ten and after one hour flight time arrived at Headcorn airfield in Kent. Phil used five way points, but stayed south of that line to keep away from Gatwick traffic.
