Being a lover of all things vintage, when I saw signs advertising a 1940s themed airshow at the local aeroclub (where I learned to fly a plane), I knew I had to check it out.
It was a rare occasion for them to be hosting an airshow, in fact I believe it’s the only one they’ve ever had, but it seems it was to mark their 25th anniversary.
The highlight for me was the Spitfire – rare in itself, with apparently less than 300 left in the world, this throwback to WW2 looped, twisted and dived to delight the crowds. The noise of the engines was fantastic!
It wasn’t only vintage aircraft on show: tractors, tanks, cars and motorbikes, some dating back to the 1920s, also put in an appearance. There was even a collection of beautifully crafted model planes.
