    23 Oct 17 - Stephen Nuttall - 0.5 NM North of HMS Nightjar

    Flew into Elvington on Monday 9 October to visit the excellent Yorkshire Air Museum (YAM). PPR was easy: a quick call to the mobile number in the AFE guide and advice that there would be no-one at the airfield and that YAM would collect the landing fee. From Blackpool I asked for and got a VFR transit across Leeds zone which gave a great view of the city.

    The runway is over 3,000 metres long, (and harder to spot than you would expect – or maybe that’s just me!), although there is a shorter section ‘marked’ roughly in the middle. I just landed nearest to the museum after making blind calls to the A/G and saved a few minutes taxiing time. (No one else there when I arrived anyway). Parking was as directed in my PPR call next to the Buccaneer. Now that the 49 acre parking area is fenced off for non-aviation use, there is actually only a relatively small amount of parking, but it was plenty enough and only a two minute walk to the museum. The YAM itself is outstanding and in four hours I still didn’t have enough time to take in all the exhibits. The NAAFI at the museum was excellent and did a great selection of good food. All in all, the visit was a great one and I cannot recommend it highly enough. (NB – comments and scores for this airfield include the facilities and café at YAM – there really is nothing other than the runway at the airfield itself).
