If you need contacts for Bruntingthorpe, let me know, I know a few involved with the Cold War Jet days. Could be up for this - might even go as far as offering aerial photography from an aircraft, cost/time depending.

Cheers, that sounds great. I believe Millsy is in touch with Bruntingthorpe as it seems to be a hot favourite for the attempt - ticking all the boxes with regards to location and size. Will keep you posted.

Would be up for this, although it may clash with drive-it day, I'm down to organise our local club run, so it may be difficult to get out of it.

Another couple of venues that you could consider are Elvington Airfield outside York (it's where The Hamster had his big land speed attempt crash for Top Gear) and is next door to The Yorkshire Air Museum.

Someone else has mentioned Bruntingthorpe which I was also going to suggest as it would also be ideal.

There is also an airfield outside Stafford that is used for supercar experiences (i'm one of their instructors) that could be ideal and inexpensive.

As I'm based in York, Elvington as mentioned would be ideal haha!

However as the Midlands is the middle of the country (go figure) distance is pretty fair across the board.
