Netherthorpe 22nd December 2019.

First time visit to Netherthorpe , Home of the Sheffield Aero Club. I rang the Aero club and asked if it was possible to visit and photograph the resident and visiting aircraft. Permission granted I set off the next morning .A nice friendly airfield with a first class Café run by Sue and her staff with good priced food and drinks.

The Aero Club gave me a full tour with an escort to all the Hangars and aircraft parking area. I have not seen four Piper Comanches together for many years, A nice mix of old, new and home built aircraft pictured on the day. I have done a pictorial list of what I pictured.I would like to thank the Sheffield Aero Club for their hospitality and will become a regular visitor next year
