|MK356 provided a thrilling flypast|
I was again invited to make a static display of model aircraft as examples of aeroplanes that had featured in the 1st and 2nd world wars. Only problem was that I didn't have suitable aeroplanes.
Thankfully fellow SCRCS members were willing to lend some models, help with the delivery, help with the setting up and generally lend a hand. As a result we had 7 aircraft on display for which I prepared information sheets about the real aircraft and also a few notes about the models.
The models displayed were:
- Supermarine Spitfires (2)
- Messerschmitt bf109 (2)
- Piper L4 Grasshopper
- North American P47 Thunderbolt
- Royal Aircraft Factory SE5a
This was a Middlewich Heritage Event with re-enactments, exhibitions, displays, activities and entertainment, flight simulator, spitfire static display, military vehicles, stalls and even a flypast by Battle of Britain Memerial Flight Spitfire MK356.
