This is the 6th in a series of 8 caches around East Midlands Airport Nature Trail.
The trail now runs around the back of the airport, this gets quite muddy in the wet weather. The trail can take a number of routes, it depends if you like planes or nature. They all come back together before the cache site.
If you're lucky you may see some firemen with their hoses out.

The co-ordinates for this cache take you to one of the many art sculptures around the walk. In order to find the cache you will have to decode the following.

The Nature Trail is approximately 7 miles long, over a variety of surfaces. Some of the sections can be quite muddy at times. There are a wide variety of things to see en-route as the trail takes in all aspects of the airport.
Dotted around the trail are information boards relating to the wildlife in that area and local information.
