Saunton Sands


Note: This map only gives a rough idea of where the aircraft landed.



SAUNTON SANDS: A one-off Fly-In?

Location:  About 2.5nm W of Braunton town centre, and about 7.5nm WNW of Barnstaple town centre


NOTES: On the Sunday 3rd June 2018 a Fly-In by several Piper L-4 Cubs, plus a rare Aeronca Defender had been organised. This was to celebrate the U.S. Forces using Saunton Sands as a training area prior to the D-Day landings. 

They had gathered at DUNKESWELL the previous day for the Devon Strut Annual Fly-In.
