Oaksey Park Sunday Lunch Fly-Out.
30th June 2019. Seven aircraft and twenty people joined in the fly out for Sunday lunch, which is sure to be a regular fixture on the Take Flight calendar, from the reaction of members on this trip.
Oaksey Park is a beautifully maintained grass airfield in Wiltshire on the edge of the Kemble ATZ and near Cotswold Water Park. The main runway 04/22 is over 1,000 metres long. Although a tad windy it was largely down the runway at the air strip but otherwise the weather was perfect.
The crew took the short walk into the village of Oaksey and the Wheatsheaf Inn where we had reserved two large tables and enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch which was both well presented and exceptional value. The Sunday roast was a big favourite and once again members, guests and family enjoyed great company, although the short walk back to the airfield was not quite long enough to compensate for the large portions of sticky toffee pudding!
