A visit to Black Magic – Egginton 18th August 2019..

On my to do list for a long while, A visit to view the DH88 Comet racer G-ACSP under restoration at Derby Airfield  Egginton. I rang the day before and made an appointment to visit the Airfield. A lot of standing  water from a rain storm Friday night made walking around the flight line a very wet affair. I have posted a pictorial log of the aircraft that I photographed on the visit . I intend to visit again on a dry sunny day.
No pictures will be published from Egginton at the request of the airfield owners.
