Arriving together and landing in quick succession, on Sunday morning, were three Schweizer 269Cs, G-OGOB (left), G-BXRP (centre) and G-OJAE (right). G-OJAE is probably more correctly described as a Hughes 269C since it was built in 1980, before Schweizer purchased the rights to the 269 series in 1986. All three had flown from Dunkeswell in south-east Devon.
