Discovering Spilve and the Aviation Heritage of Riga

Contrary to rumours that Spilve Aerodrome outside Riga was abandoned I was delighted to discover that is thriving and features one of the few Stalinist-era buildings in Riga, a magnificent terminal building. Nearby is the unique Latvia Soviet Aviation Museum currently based next to Riga International Airport. This museum has an amazing assortment of MiGs, a rarity in the Western world.

Life in a Coronavirus Pandemic: England Enters Lockdown 3

Life in a Coronavirus Pandemic: England Enters Lockdown 3

During Week 42 of the coronavirus pandemic the number of daily COVID-19 deaths breaks all previous records and England goes back into lockdown. The NHS is stretched to the limit and England is plunged into a third national lockdown. This is set to last until mid-February at the earliest. As the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out starts in earnest we hope this will be the last lockdown – but this depends on compliance as the new variant of COVID-19 strengthens its hold on the UK.
