Visited for the first time today in my Cessna 150 (at close to MAUW) it was like stepping back to the 1950's (in a nice way)

I don't have massive amounts of experience but most of my flying has been off grass.

Approach from the sea was novel to me, loved flying over the guns. Came in too high though (even the 40 degree flap wouldn't lose enough height) so went around. Second time round was a near perfect landing. Parked by the caravan, signed in, paid then tried to find the village. There are rabbit scrapes, slow taxi the order of the day.

£5 landing fee must be best value ever

Weybourne village is about a 15 minute walk with a superb pub.

Came back after lunch to find the wind had picked up. Approx 20 knot moreorless headwind uphill, it put the shortfield takeoff techniques to the test. I was regretting the fish and chips as the high ground and trees approached !

Fortunately trusting the plane to perform close to poh and resisting the temptation to snatch the column got us over them. I think it goes down as my interesting takeoff ever.

We'll be back, but will choose a day when the wind allows a downhill departure next time.
