Middlewich Wartime Weekend 21st-23rd September

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:
Model Display
  • 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.
