SABC 'Open / Non Flying Day Sept 30th 2012

Serpentine Aircraft Builders Club (SABC) hosted there annual 'Open Day' at there airfield on Sunday 30th September 2012, together with Porsche,  Rolls Royce car clubs and vintage motor cycle display.

This year's visit revealed 25x new aircraft for us, with a total number of aircraft logged for this visit being 88, (some of which are in the images below).

It was a great day out as usual, catching up also with fellow enthusiasts, David Eyre and Keith Anderson representing AAWA.

It was with dissapointing  that no aircraft flew on the day, this was we understand due to a representative from Civil Aviation Safety Aurtority being present on the day.
