Hidden Airstrip


….next to the Christmas Tree Farm we visited last week

When we were tying our tree to the roof of our car I walked around the parking lot looking for interesting scenes to photograph. There was a man standing close by and he told me I was welcome to walk further onto the airstrip. Airstrip?

I had no idea that the open field that I had been photographing was an aerodrome (term used for a grass runway). I guess the wind sox should have given it away.P1070301

I’m not sure of the name of the Aerodrome but I think it might be the Flamboro Air Strip. Behind the man stood a large out building and he invited us to come inside and see the planes. It housed about five replica planes that were 7/8th of the actual size of the originals.

It was a fascinating place. I only wish I knew more about planes.P1070312

There was one other light aircraft that I found very interesting. It was built and owned by the kind gentleman who invited us in. It has an open cockpit and single seat. It looks like fun to fly but I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to go up in it.P1070314
