    Eggington is a nice little airfield to visit with a friendly owner who will normally gives a guided tour. There always seems to be plenty of wrecks and relics lying around the place


    Cessna 152 G-SACF destroyed during a training flight from Derby airfield in March 1997


    Socata TB-10 G-OFLG crashed during take-off 23rd July 2005

    and worth the trip just to see Amy Johnson's D.H. 88 Comet 'Black Magic' G-ACSP being restored to an airworthy condition

    Never actually been to Eggington, but hang on a minute! I have been to Burnaston when that 'control tower' was there in 1989?

    Correct, friends of mine owned and ran a flying school from Burnaston and in 1990 we had to clear everything out and leave with days notice. The control tower was shipped out a long with everything else.

    Myself and wirefox were there last saturday in a 'thunderstorm' to see the comet racer and sat down with Stewart and Martin for a hot cup of tea, and it's very clear that this airfield is very much alive and well, and some interesting stuff in for CoA and repairs including a DC-6 radial !! also we were told a Fokker Tri-plane and SE5 is due in soon for some, 'get ready for the season' stuff.
