CELEBRATING the 70th anniversary of Wickenby Airfield, the Wings and Wheels 2012 show takes place this weekend.

The airshow – taking place at Wickenby Aerodrome on 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 First World War Airco DH2, the Morane and the iconic Tiger Moth.

There is even a chance to try 1940s-style wing walking.
