Northumberland - (birds eye view) from the air

19th Feb 2012

A meet up with Captain Pugwash at Barton Airport, Manchester and off we shot to chase and catch up with a fellow pilot from Barton.

The route was to Bolton, then over the Peninnes into Yorkshire and across to the Northumberland coast.

We had a landing at Eshott Airfield, a former training centre for Spitfire pilots,  It was a quick stop over for a mug of coffee and a loo break.

The return journey took us across into the Scottish borders and back home to Manchester via the English Lake District.

A lot of photos taken of the journey, most I will save for another day - so here is Northumberland in all its glory.
