I remember quite a few years ago when at a full size airshow at North Weald, the Vulcan was preparing to take off with brakes on and throttles up. He then let go on the brakes and went off down the runway.

I was listening in on my airband radio and heard the following F16 lining up on the runway behind the Vulcan say on the radio that some maintenance was needed as there was a 6 foot lump of tarmac lifted up as the Vulcan took off. frown

"wonder where he went to land again? "

That was runway 10 - He then landed on 16 and took off again from 16 later. Very carefully...

I don't think Halfpenny Green airfield is council-owned.

But North Weald airfield (mentioned by Essjay in the post before yours) certainly is - Epping Forest District Council have owned it for not far short of 40 years now.
