UK’s Newest Aviation AttractionBack to Forum

Ever fancied a jaunt in a vintage aircraft?
Air Atlantiqe has recently established AIRBASE at Coventry Airport, which is now home to Britain’s largest collection of flyable vinatge jets and piston powered aircraft.
Among the collection include a Dragon Rapide and a Dove, as well as a DC-3 and Dc-6.
There is also a Nimrod.
Perhaps a champagne flight beckons for Mrs Rowberry?4 Sep 2010
Sadly Mrs T would not be able to accompany Mrs R. The planes are not big enough or have BA on the side. I had enough trouble getting her to beleive me that QF and NZ were alright, thankfully they are!5 Sep 2010
Please order 2 First seats (or CW will do) and some blue & white paint for a Nimrod.
I’ve twice taken off in a BA plane with Nimrods around, when they would allow Kinloss to be used for fog diversions before ILS was installed here and the current security situation. They also flew a Concorde in and out of there one grey day in April (late 90s) as part of an open day at the base.5 Sep 2010
I’ve been in the Dove and the DC3. Great planes. I’ve always thought the Dove looks like a 747 that’s been through a too hot plane wash!
I’d go just for the chance to fly in the Rapide.15 Jun 2012
