Withernsea Fly-in 2001

The three day fly-in takes place each year over the early May bank holiday.

This year we had good weather with plenty of sunshine and a brisk wind off the North Sea. Many members made the trip and the photographs below give an idea of the range of flying that was seen.


A general view showing the high participation at this year’s event.
