Sunshine reigned over breathtaking air and motoring displays at this year's Wings and Wheels 10th show. The event has become so popular with families, that more than 40,000 visitors attended over the bank holiday weekend and a difficult decision had to be made to stop Sunday's on the day ticket sales.
The five hour air displays were packed with action from greats such as the Vulcan and Gnats display team, The Red Arrows, Breitling Wingwalkers and pyrotechnic power by the Apache Attack Helicopter Display Team. Eight aircraft from the Second World War celebrated the 70th anniversary of D-Day, performing tribute formations which left the crowd in silence as this once in a lifetime display was experienced.
Over 220 cars from Brooklands Museum provided a spectacle on the Top Gear track exhibiting a mixture of modern and classic cars. Visitors toured Dunsfold’s resident Boeing 747 as well as the VC10 owned by Brooklands Museum. Military vehicle and car parades, re-enactment battles from the Screaming Eagles and death defying acrobatics from the White Helmets where just some of the performances holding everyone's attention over this successful weekend.
The Wings and Wheels team work tirelessly to plan and host this superb event with support from many volunteers. Traffic has though become an issue for this large event and a variety of measures are being looked in to to improve this problem in future.
Wings & Wheels is promoted by Dunsfold Park Limited and this year assisted the fundraising efforts of Brooklands Museum Trust and Help for Heroes.
