Cranfield University

by Arjen Balk

The hot tarmac of the runway appears at the port side. Slowly, I terminate the approach turn and line up for the runway. Through the frantically rotating propeller blades, I see rows of Spitfires warming up in the strong midday sun. Controlled activity between the aircraft makes the airfield look like a disturbed ants’ nest. Where possible, mechanics embark upon their damage-control activities, making the birds airworthy for their next mission. My aircraft willingly responds to my commands and I return to base safely. Arjen Balk reports about his studies on aviation safety at Cranfield University.
