Save British Airports

We are looking for a new home for the only flying de Havilland Vampire in the UK due to the imminent Coventry airport closure https://vampireflight.co.uk/2021/04/12/new-home-wanted/#more-627
Finding a new home for a heritage jet in the UK is as “easy” as getting one airworthy. We are losing more airfields every year, mainly to housing / development, than we built in the last 50 years.

The reasons why it’s almost impossible are:

  1. Poor runways state or runways are not long enough
  2. Noise abatement / neighbour complaints concerns
  3. Extortionate costs
  4. Lack of hangarage
  5. Politics, etc.

If you know friendly airport owners or managers who would like to invite the Vampire please let us know. You won’t be forgotten!

Also, please write to your MP and ask to protect the British airfields.
