Look to the skies above Middle Wallop on Saturday 1st July as the team at the Army Flying Museum present their third Wheels and Wings event. Enthusiasts of all ages are in for a special treat as 50 classic aircraft and over 300 cars and bikes descend on the museum and historic airfield next month.
Throughout the day, visitors are set to see a wide array of aircraft flying in and out of the Museum’s annual fundraising event and weather permitting, spectators will see the fabulous Heritage Flight from Rolls-Royce make a very special first-time appearance, along with the vibrant Stinson Reliant from Navy Wings.
Car enthusiasts will be thrilled to see some stunning super cars with the Porsche Club and Ferrari Owner’s Club in attendance. If classic cars are your thing, then fear not as the Austin Healey Club, Aston Martin Owner’s Club and Wessex Area Lotus Club will all be there to please and delight fans. A Concours D’Elegance will also ensure visitors see a display of the most prestigious vintage cars on show.
The event will also showcase some fabulous motorbikes, with the British Army Motorsports Association making a special appearance at this year’s event.
A full programme of entertainment will run throughout the day including lots of activities for the whole family including craft activities, laser tag, STEM area, garden games and circus skills for all ages to get involved in. The event village will also showcase local artisan traders courtesy of Hampshire Fare and visitors will be able to tuck into some lovely food and experience delicious local ales from the Hopback Brewery. A packed programme of live music will also be on offer from local performers Jayne Deer and Rosie Merritt.
A Living History area will see visitors able to find out more about the second world war and the different regiments and personnel who played their part.
Chief Executive of the Museum Lucy Johnson said: “Wallop Wheels and Wings is the Army Flying Museum’s main fundraising event and a chance to showcase some of the best vintage aircraft, cars and motorbikes on the beautiful site of the historic Middle Wallop airfield. The museum is an independent charity and relies on fundraising activities to support the work we do in preserving the history of Army aviation, so the proceeds from this event are vitally important and we are hugely grateful to our main sponsors Rolls-Royce Ltd, Waltet and Castle Cameras for their support. But remember, the event is also a brilliant day out for the whole family and we hope you can join us!”
