    Crowland aero jumble. 1st July 2017

    Anybody heard about this new event yet. I'm led to believe that its a new event in Crowland near Peterborough. Haven't heard the full details yet but I understand there are overnight camping facilities and a local grass airstrip for flyings buy arrangement.
    Although billed as an aero jumble , 1940'S type stallas and early jet stalls are encouraged.
    Hope its a success. Its encouraging to see new events especially 'in the North'
    Might be worth a visit. Any body else up for it !

    Crowland "in the North"........??? More accurately described as being "in the East".......

    Anywhere north of Watford is "The North" in many people's book.

    I'm in.

    The Pooley's airfield guide has Crowfield as the home of the Peterborough and Spalding Gliding Club. The postcode is PE6 0JW, the phone number is 01733 210463 and the website is www.psgc.co.uk. I hope that helps

    I've been contacted by the prospective organiser who describes the location as South Lincs/Crowland.

    However, I'll leave it to him advertise the details when, presumably, he has decided to run the event for sure.

    The glider club is commonly called Crowland Airfield and is mainly for air tow glider operations. Flights not connect with glider ops are unusual.
    The bigger 'local' airfield is Fenland Airfield, also known as Holbeach St Johns.
    As a Peterborough local I wish the organiser good luck.

    Thanks for the link, interesting to see that they are looking in the future to be the UK's biggest annual aerojumble / militaria event. I wish them well, there's certainly been a demise over the years on aerojumbles. Holding it on an active airfield is appealing.

    Thanks for clarification about the airfield, not many of these aerojumble events about so may pop up there and support this one.

    Northeast of me, by a mere 3600 miles or so.
