…. that combination is what Goodwood in the UK has to offer…. frequently! We have reported before about the two main events on the ‘racing track’ estate, the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival, both centered around classic (racing) cars and classic aircraft. But now there is the Goodwood Breakfast Club, offering a regular and spectacular way to enjoy more of these golden oldies! Read all about it here !When my friend Didier Keller was visiting the last time, flying his classic Piper Cub, he met with a Stampe bi-plane in the air and they flew to Goodwood Breakfast together. Unfortunately the fate of the old aircraft was to have a very rude and definite end to the breakfast meeting…. it took off by itself, leaving the pilot behind, and crashed into some trees bordering the airfield. You can read this BBC account of that incident!
Below is the Stampe photographed by Didier before landing at Goodwood.
