Hibaldstow, Wickenby and Humberide Airport. 30th September 2018.
Open day at Hibaldstow , I found this event on the internet and I took the chance and visited. Hibaldstow is the home of Skydive with it’s fleet of Dornier Do-28G Turbo prop aircraft and a Cessna Caravan.
A great event with a static aircraft park that included under restoration N.A Havard IIB G-BZHL ex 43-12859,FT118 and a Beagle Terrier II G-ASDK ex VF631. In the main Hangar was the latest Dornier Do 28D to be converted to a turbo prop G model with Do28G’s D-IAAI & HA-HIB both outside.
I have posted a pictorial log of what I pictured on the day.
