12:00 visit. Came here for Combined Op's, the Military Show and Vintage Aircraft weekend. The Invicta Military Vehicle Preservation Society brought along a fine display of machinery. The air displays from the classic aircraft were impressive and the highlight was the Lancaster Bomber and a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which made for a sight and sound to behold on there display. The Wings Bar here sold a full range of Shep's products with one handpump in use. The Marquee Bar and entertainment area, set up withing the main event had a small selection of ales, straight from the cask. A great day out here, our first visit to this event. The Wings Bar is normally only open in the evenings, after all flying has finished, todays big event being an exception. The Holding Point Cafe, also here, is open all day, every day.
