A little trip around the UK
So in this series (I like my events based around certain themes, ok?), I’m going around my home nation, and finding some of the airports and are smaller and/or lesser used. I hope we can get a little group to these events, so we can have some great shots of these little works of arts!
Bournemouth Airport, is an airport located 2.5nm north-northeast of Bournemouth, in Southern England. The site opened as RAF Hurn in 1941 but was transferred to civil control in 1944. For a short period Hurn served as Britain’s only international airport, until the opening of facilities at Heathrow. Commercial services resumed in the late 1950’s, with Palmair commencing flights to Palma Majorca in October 1958. The current primary users of the airport is Ryanair and TUI.
So, what’s the famous stuff about this airport?
Famous stuff here
So, what was the airport like?
This. Hurn Airport.
What did it look like earlier this year?
Colourful. It migrated to a single runway, and to the mercy of Ryanair.
What does it look like now?
Full, and sad.
Any famous things?
It had the Concorde on the ground on the 21st April, 1996 as a national tour to show the pride of how successful the aircraft was. I think it was sad, it only had 1 issue in hundreds of thousands of hours in service, and it was grounded full stop.
This is on a Wednesday for Europe/Africa/America times zones.
Airport information will be given by me shortly before the event. You will be tagged a day before the event, and 1 hour before, as well as be added to a PM a few days before. Many photos will be taken after the event, so please maintain best realism, and do your best to follow the gates already assigned. If you want a real flight that isnt in the list, I’d be happy to change it over to suit you!
Since this is a small airport, this event will be off a strict ‘first come first served’ airport. These are the gates, they can be changed by request, but there will not be any more added, and you will be denied if there is no space left. My other events will have larger airports soon!

Part of the Red Arrows base is at Bournemouth. I have assigned gates for F16’s and F-18’s to take their place. This is the Expert Server. Please respect the rules. This could be enforced by ghosting, and any trolling will be immediately reported to a moderator. By signing up to one of these gates you agree to following the rules below, and maintaining a safe distance, speed and manor whilst in the airspace.
Local flying is not allowed. You are allowed to leave this airspace, have your fun or professional flying above 10,000ft far from traffic, and definately London, before returning back.
