Pilot reviews of Bruntingthorpe Airfield

25 Aug 14 - Paul Bond - Walsall

Cold War Jets Day - August 2014 was well attended and approximately 30 GA aircraft flew in. Runway in use 06 hard. Long taxi to parking spot but much better than in previous years when it was so far away from the crowd line. ATC on the way in was good but on departure many aircraft got lost trying to navigate their way around the airfield whilst following the ATC instructions. Landing fee same as entry fee by car.

BBMF Spitfire & Hurricane overflew as did a Boeing 737 returning to its owners. Vulcan 558 seen in the distance. Food purchases of the burger & chips variety.

Many former airliners and ex RAF tanker aircraft (VC10 & Tristars)on site now. Soon to be broken up no doubt by the resident dismantlers. At least 1 VC10 appears to have been kept for fast taxi runs as it did on the day. Impressive.

  • Quality and value of food / drink: 2
  • Standard of runway: 5
  • Landing fee / handling charges: 5
  • ATC / AFIS / A/G service: 3
  • Friendliness of welcome: 5

Bruntingthorpe Cold War Jets Day 2012 Flew in on a gloomy overcast day and whilst the airfield could be seen easily had to orbit on the downwind leg as "they were just moving a Nimrod". Massive runway and helpful guy on the radio. Landing fee £10 but that did provide you with a driver and minibus to take you to and from the main viewing area which was some considerable distance away from our parking location. Food was of the burger variety and a plastic cup of tea/cofee. On deciding to depart obtained clearance to enter the runway (just before the Comet was scheduled to go)with over half behind us but still plenty to use for take off.

Flew into Bruntingthorpe, on a very windy day, for the Cold War Jets Museum open day, which is an excellent and well attended event. ATIS was helpful and I got to land on a very long runway! Not sure what facilites normally exist here regarding food and drink but there were several places selling during the event. There is no AVGAS available. Landing was free.
