Been advised by a local Bobby this morning, that the lane along the South end of the airfield from RAPRA to Shawbury Business Park will be closed to the public. Apparently from this afternoon with access only for residents.

Party poopers! :grr:

Probably to stop people like this.

In the wake of Shoreham, peoples attitudes have changed, and rightly so.

You might want to re read the Notam.

States 14.51.

Notams are in Zulu, not local.

The Red Arrows are due into Shawbury at 3.51pm. They are doing a flypast at Crudgington Primary School (Telford) on route to Shawbury today. I did check with Red Arrows about the NOTAMS showing 2.51pm and they reponsed that NOTAMS are in GMT. Due to it being British Summer time the clocks are forward by 1 hour so our flypast is scheduled for 3.51pm then straight to Shawbury.
