“I remember in about 1952 when I was eight years old being taken by my father to Carnaby airfield to see Billy Butlin arrive in his red aeroplane. He landed there as it was the nearest airfield to Butlins Holiday Camp at Filey.
Another memory is also about the airfield. About the same time I used to watch from our house on the south side as the Meteor jets were flying “circuit and bumps” (practice take off and landing) at the airfield.”
