3 Virginia Airfields Trip - July 18 2021

Post by VH3D »

Hi All,

I took small road trip to visit 3 small airports in Virginia.

First stop was Warrenton-Fauquier Airport - HWY. Right there I've got ex USAF Rescue Grumman Albatross HU-16E N226GR "Splash"

Next stop was Culpeper Regional Airport - CJR Not much there, all the warbirds were in the hangar. The only other interesting item was PHI Health Bell 407 N494PH

Image

From there I went onto Orange County Airport - OMH where there is big Skydiving club with Cessna 208 and DHC-6 Twin Otter.

On the way back home in Manassas, Beech Queen Air 65 N5452W caught my attention as it was parked next to Wawa gas station.

That Beech in Manassas belongs to Aviation Institute of Maintenance, a technical school with also a Learjet and a few Cessnas. It is in the blue/white building visible on the second picture.
I guess that spot is kind of their gate guard. A few months ago Cessna 152 N757YU was seen outside at that spot.

Aviation Institute of Maintenance had 'Open House'. I guess that weekend they took few of their instructional frames outside to make a statement. It worked on me :) I went behind the building and saw rest of their 'fleet' including the Learjet. Unfortunately only couple of small frames could be photographed so I didn't bother.
