Visited Old Buckenham on 17/05/2016 in G-ROLY a 172 based at Netherthorpe. This was an easy flight almost, speaking to Waddington LARS and then Marham. The PPR was arranged online via the website and no one was available to speak to on the number. By all accounts the airfield is mainly open on the weekends and we visited on a Tuesday.
Despite this the airfield was easy to find and the tarmac runway was in good order. There was a cabin open for self service drinks but the coffee machine was not working. We settled for cold drinks and a chocolate bar. You then pay the landing fee and for the food and leave in a security box.
The airfield is obviously very active at some times with lots of history and military vehicles on site.
Would like to visit on a Friday or weekend to get a proper feel for the place as the café has good signs of being good for food!
