TO CELEBRATE the 70th anniversary of Wickenby Airfield the Rasen Mail is offering one lucky family the chance to win tickets to Wings and Wheels 2012 - in an exclusive online-only competition.
The airshow – taking place at Wickenby Aerodrome on Father’s Day weekend, June 16 and 17 – will feature impressive air displays from lightweight modern aerobatic aircraft to historic and operational military aircraft of today.
And there will be a large collection of vintage cars and motorcycles, children’s entertainment, 4x4 off-roading and a 1940s charity dinner and dance on Saturday evening in aid of the RAF Association.
The show line up will feature displays from Britain’s top aerobatic pilots including a flypast by the Red Arrows on Saturday and The Matadors aerobatic team, featuring former Red Bull Air Race pilots, on Sunday.
In keeping with Wickenby Aerodrome’s 70 year aviation history, nostalgia comes in ample supply with displays from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Hurricane and Dakota, the WW1 Airco DH2, Morane and iconic Tiger Moth. There is even a chance to try 1940s-style wing walking.
To be in with a chance of winning a family ticket for two adults and two children just answer this simple question: Wickenby Airfield was used in which World War?
The tickets are worth £30 and can be used on either June 16 or 17. All entries must be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Wednesday, June 13. Please include a contact phone number. The winner will be notified on Thursday, June 14.
