    Just a local ride out with Mrs Radar on the back of my Thundercat. We were joined by Thumper and his Mrs on their GS. Checked out the excellent, canal side ‘Navigation’ pub in Kingswinford first, before heading over to the nearby ex RAF base which now serves local aviation needs for Wolverhampton. Only 50km altogether, but a good ride in great company to an interesting spot…can’t be bad

    The bikes outside the Navigation, and no they are not the two wheelie bins…

    Then up at the former RAF Halfpenny Green

    The ‘Gate Gurdian’….A BAC (Hunting) Jet Provost

    A Happy crew

    Making the way to the all important cafe in the control tower

    Had a decent cuppa and watched a few light aircraft come and go, and most notably a Police EC135 Eurocopter, the West Midlands Police helicopters are based there

    Well worth a a visit if you get a minute


    Looks good and you can get surprisingly close to the planes!
