Would make sense as Aston Martin used to be based in Newport Pagnell, which is 15 minutes up the road.

Cranfield is where I fly from and I really wanted to get over there to see that, unfortunately I had to go to the gym!

Very very nice photo! I heard it only dropped off one aston martin.
I believe we had a saudi C130 do the same thing 2yrs ago.

There was another one in a couple of years ago which allegedly returned a smashed up Aston for repair.

Yeah, I also looked up the photo from 2yrs ago and stand corrected, it wasnt saudi but was a moroccan airforce one again.

I'm surprised it made the newspaper. Well, it is the sun I suppose.
If he wants to bring his car to the UK to be fixed so beit. Made a nice change from the usual private jets etc we normally get at Cranfield.
