This task is an out and return. Do the task when winds are westerly so you are blown back towards the airfield.
St Neots is easily visible as the first town to the west of the airfield. To the south of St Neots, several lakes are easy to spot. If you are over the lakes, you have already passed the turn point.
The airfield is not easily spotted from St Neots. If you can see the red brick houses of Cambourne, head toward them. Otherwise head east, passing to the north of the golf course and Abbotsley. From there, Great Gransden and the airfield should be easily visible.
