Wings & Wheels
This popular event is in its eighteenth year and is still run by its original volunteer team. It is staged to help raise funds and awareness for the airfield-based Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. Given reasonably good weather across the southern UK, visitors can expect to see over 100 vintage/classic/modern light aircraft landing on this former wartime naval air-station. The event also hosts an equal number of classic vehicles of all types from the 1930s to modern super-cars. There is model flying from bi-planes to fast jets. Subject to tasking, the NEW air-ambulance helicopter will visit crowd-side to 'meet and greet'. There is all-day catering and a special Barbecue and Hog Roast. A unique feature is the lunch-time 'air-park-open' allowing everyone the to walk around the aircraft and take close-up photos. This year's traditional 'Fly-past Salute' by the BBMF will feature the newly overhauled LANCASTER escorted by TWO SPITFIRES.
