Arriving in Yorkshire
The date is the 8th October and Martyn and the crew (Team Condor) are due to arrive in Breighton after collecting the aircraft from Polland. There is a buzz of excitement around the airfield and everyone stops what they are doing as the Antonov comes into land.
After a short stop it is time to get the Antonov moved to Birchwood where it will be resprayed ready for the Rally. However, the Antonov has acquired some rather small but rather noisy extra passengers for this leg of the journey. Sebby and Charlie adorned their flying suits with much glee.
Once arrived at Birchwood, the Antonov is positioned ready for the respraying that week.
