Travel the Aviation Trails

“These series of trails are the musings of an aviation enthusiast with too much time on their hands. I simply have a love of aviation (in particular military) having been introduced by my father’s stories of his time in the Royal Air Force during the 1950s.”

This is the opening gambit by the writer of “Aviation Trails”, a blog inspired by his own love of aviation which stems from his father and his own love of aircraft. This is a personal treasure trove for all those interested in aviation, featuring 53 trails throughout Great Britain, from Kent to the Scottish Borders, packed with info and pictures. Coningsby and Woodhall Spa airfields feature in Trail 1.

“These series of trails are the musings of an aviation enthusiast with too much time on their hands. I simply have a love of aviation (in particular military) having been introduced by my father’s stories of his time in the Royal Air Force during the 1950s. As a child I dreamt of fast jets and soaring above the clouds in formation. My brother and I would spend our holidays building complex cockpits between our beds, drawing each and every instrument using cockpit photos and magazine articles as guides. Sheets would form the roof, shoe boxes throttles, and old headphones as radios. We lived the fantasy, and for a few hours a day we were pilots – we were living the dream.”
