We did! Great day out and the weather was brilliant, So much so in fact that the earliest airworthy aircraft in the collection were able to fly. Namely, the Bristol Boxkite (a replica but still dates back to 1924!), the 103 year old Bristol Monoplane (the oldest airworthy British-built aircraft in the world) and the 108 year old Depardussin! (And those two are the genuine articles).

Add to that, Spits (PRXI and Vc), TF-51 and Sea Hurricane, a host of civilian air racing types including the DH.88 Comet 'Grosvenor House' and the Travel Air Mystery Ship plus loads of cool cars and bikes.

Thanks to Chris, Sarah and her parents for being great company for the day.
