Dunsfold Wings And Wheels

It was quite like old times on 27th August when, for the second time, the Brooklands Museum and Dunsfold Park collaborated to mount an excellent all-day motoring and flying display.

In beautiful weather the large and happy crowd were treated to displays by many 'Hawker' types including the Red Arrows and the RAF singleton display Hawks,  Harrier GRMk7, a Hunter, the Peter Vacher Hurricane Mk 1 R4118 and Sea Fury FB 11 VR930 from the RN Historic Flight.

The supporting cast included the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the 'Utterly Butterly' Boeing-Stearman Model 75 girl-on-wing team, the YAK formation aerobatic team and the astonishing Will Curtis in his Sukhoi 26 showing just what incredible manoeuvres a small aeroplane with a large engine can be persuaded to do.

Twins were represented by a Dakota from Aces High and a Dutch B-25 Mitchell which recalled the days in 1943 when 320 Squadron of Royal Netherlands Naval Air Service flew from Dunsfold on operations over northern France.
