Model flying displays, new and historic aircraft, military vehicles, 1940s music and dancing, WW2 re-enactment groups and children’s entertainment will come together for a family fun day at the Museum of Army Flying in Middle Wallop this Bank Holiday Monday (May 28).
The Museum’s flagship annual event, Wartime Wallop, will feature an opportunity to get up close to current military helicopters, as well as the more veteran aircraft including an Auster, Beaver and Scout.
Other attractions of the day will include model flying, a crowd pleasing fly-out from the HAF (Historic Aircraft Flight) team, as well as an opportunity to see or dance in a 1940s style with the Andover Lindyhoppers, or just enjoy the wartime era music and dancing from the Decibelles.
Attendees include the Wiltshire Home Guard, Army Air Corps, SSAFA, HAF, the 25th BD Co RE LHG, SAM1066/Southern Area of BMFA and many more.
For kids, and grown-ups if they wish, there will also be a chance to get into action with Battlefield South’s laser tag arena, as well as a large bouncy castle, The Joystick Club, and an opportunity to see and take part in scientific experiment displays with Genie Lab Displays.
