This is the 14th successful year this fantastic family show has been staged at Henstridge Airfield, Somerset.

A great day out for the family with lots of great aircraft, great cars, a BBQ lunch and a nice relaxed garden party atmosphere.

A fantastic display of vintage and classic cars will be on show in front of the Henstridge Club House. With famous marques such as Buick, Marcos, Morris, Chevrolet and Ford all on show. The colours and chrome glimmer in the summer sunshine, so bright it is almost compulsory to wear sunglasses!

The Car show is supported by Dorset Car Club.

A few really nice trade stalls will be found here as well, offering a wide variety of books, tools, nostalgia items and general souvenirs.

We normally expect between 70- 100 aircraft on a good weather day. From sole survivors of their type to home builds, popular Moths and Vagabonds, they will all be found at Wings & Wheels. You will have a great view of all the arrivals, and of the airpark.

And ….. if you wish you can have a pleasure flight with Rise Helicopters over the local area for some really great views of the Blackmoor Vale!

 

At lunch time we open the airpark to you, the visitor. This means that you can wander around all the arrival aircraft and get really close. But please don’t touch! Also don’t drop your rubbish in the airpark, it really can cause problems for the aircraft.

During this time, we often have radio controlled model aircraft flying, most impressive!

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, who are based at Henstridge Airfield usually pay us a visit during the course of the day , subject to their operational requirements, ….why not have  a look at their great life saving helicopter … close up!

Beacause of the reputation that the organising team have built up over the last 20 plus years that they have worked together, we never know who or what will arrive!  However, this year we have been allocated probably the three most famous aircarft in the world, The RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire.

Imagine the setting ….. the sun high in the late August sky, a warm gentle breeze fans the airfield full of classic aircraft.

One person squints and points to the west, low in the sky.  Other eyes follow the gaze, and through the summer haze the familiar shape of the Lancaster, a small tube with 2 small blobs each side, more people look, the excitement and tension builds.

Off to the left and right of the Lancaster, 2 more small marks can be seen, jostling for position and keeping a watchful guard on the larger aircraft, the Spitfire and Hurricane can be seen.

Quickly the summer peace is shattered as the modern pilots skilfully throw the classic Merlin and Griffon powered aircraft over the historic airfield of Henstridge.

Pass after pass is made, the power and might of these Best of British forcing people to stare up in to the bright summer sky ……. then silence. 

A time to remember.

Then all too quickly, it will be time to let the aircraft go, so they can return to their home airfield, or farm strips.  Again you will have a great view of the departing aircraft.

 

Note that all outdoor events can be affected by the weather.  Most of the aircraft due to be on show travel from many miles away, from all over the UK.  Some with an airspeed of just 60 – 70mph and most should be drawing their pensions by now.  Check the weather at Henstridge
