The Army Flying Museum at Middle Wallop, Hampshire is inviting all photography enthusiasts to experience a unique opportunity at their flagship fundraising event on 1 July – Wallop Wheels and Wings. The Museum is giving limited access to a dedicated photography enclosure on the airfield to ensure enthusiasts are able to take clear images of aircraft arrivals at the event from 7.30am, along with the arrival of over 300 classic and super cars and motorbikes.
The photography enclosure offers enthusiasts a fabulous view of the curated collection of classic aircraft that will be on display at the event, including a selection from the Historic Aircraft Flight who can often be seen flying in and out of the historic airfield at Middle Wallop.
Sponsors of the enclosure, Graham Fry from Castle Cameras said: “We are delighted to confirm our sponsorship of the Army Flying Museum’s Wallop, Wheels and Wings event again for 2023. We look forward to seeing you all once again for this superb family day that packs-in a whole airfield’s worth of photo opportunities!”
Following two sell out years, the Museum is increasing the capacity of the event for 2023 but will limit tickets to the photography enclosure to ensure everyone has a great experience on the day.
The Museum attracts a wide range of photography enthusiasts through its doors and into its grounds each year, including a number of volunteer photographers who work on behalf of the Museum to support their wide programme of events.
Volunteer Photographer Danny Frampton said “As a volunteer photographer for the Museum I have been given the privilege to take photos of their amazing collection and learn about the Army’s involvement in aviation history. It is great to be able to record parts of the Museum’s history by photographing their events, with everything from Wheels and Wings to the recent renovation by UK Power Networks. Having my photos displayed on the Museum’s website and on their social media really does give me a great sense of pride and I have to keep pinching myself to believe I am part of this great family at the Army Flying Museum”
