0

Nearly 30,000 people visited the ninth consecutive Wings & Wheels, held at Dunsfold on 24-25 August.

Highlight on the 'wheels' side of things was Brooklands Museum taking to the Top Gear track with more than 180 cars on each day.

They included Porsche 911, Dodge Monaco, TVR Tasmin 280i, Ferrari F355 Berlinetta, Ford GT40, Lotus Elise 49 and the stunning Benetton F1 B190. There was also a first Wheels Club parade, which followed a Military Vehicle parade.

There was plenty of action in the sky as well, especially aircraft such as B-25 Mitchell, celebrating 70 years since it was first stationed at the Surrey airfield, along with Hurricane, Kittyhawk and the RN Historic Flight’s Fairey Swordfish.

There were also helicopter displays, the Red Arrows, Avro Vulcan, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (Spitfire, Lancaster, Hurricane), RN Sea Fury, Team Breitling Wingwalkers, Glider FX and the Blades, all capped off with a stunning performance by the Typhoon and Apache.
