HAA members have been invited to apply to fly in to this fundraising event at Middle Wallop.
The above fundraising event was due to take place in July 2020 at Middle Wallop but sadly like many events, it had to be postponed due to COVD-19 and planning is now going on apace for 03 July 2021. The title gives a clue to the concept and that is to drive in some 200 classic cars and fly in up to 40 classic, historic aircraft with a preference for ex-military airframes. The MoD owns the airfield and they have capped the number of aircraft at 40. Once all aircraft have landed according to slot times and a special instruction, the airfield closes to air traffic movement and the public will be allowed forward of the Museum site to view the aircraft and cars. Pilots will have a “crew room” tea/coffee and a sandwich and have access to the whole site including the Army Flying Museum. Landing fees have kindly been waived by the MoD for this event but they still require an insurance fee of £10 per aircraft.
During the period of airfield closure, they have bid for flypasts by tri-service aircraft, hopefully including the Red Arrows and elements of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Later in the afternoon, the airfield will re-open for the fly out. There will be no flying displays.
Registration details are already live on the Army Flying Museum web-site: www.armyflying.com
