The musical chord of the Ashenkov radial quietens to the contented chuffing of a sewing machine as Glenn James throttles back to settle his Yak onto the crumbling tarmac of the Shobdon runway, bouncing and trundling past the lengthening shadows of the poplars on the southern boundary as the sun sets on the surrounding Herefordshire farmland. (Does aviation get any better than this?) This 1956 C.11 was built by Strojirny Prvni Petileski for the Soviet Air Force; it is now resident at Shobdon.
