Fairthorpe Gathering 2018 pictures. North Weald Aerodrome, Essex.




Eight Fairthorpes Enjoyed the wonderful weather at the 2018 Fairthorpe Gathering at the former Battle of Britain fighter station North Weald Aerodrome in Essex. A nice selection of cars was present, several travelling many hours to get there. Furthest traveled was Barry Stock in his rare Mk5 Electron Minor and the hard fought `Best Fairthorpe` award as voted by those present on the day went to 789 ERO.
