The Yorkshire Wings & Wheels Show taking place on Saturday 31st July and Sunday 1st August promises to provide plenty of fuel for family fun and entertainment as the school holidays start.
The show will feature the eagerly anticipated first fast taxi run by the Museum’s latest acquisition, the Nimrod MR2, known as the “Mighty Hunter”, which has been the subject of much excitement since its arrival at Elvington in April. The Nimrod will perform along with the mighty Victor V-Bomber and the Yorkshire built Blackburn Buccaneer. Feel the Thunder of these magnificent veterans of the skies as they roar down the runway.
Other thrills include Big Pete’s Monster Truck, Round 2 of the UK Freestyle Stunt Motorcycle Wheelie Championships and the Pyromaniac Jet Quad bike. Thrills galore in store with these runway events.
In the sky, flying displays include a Jet Provost in the red and white RAF colours that were once so familiar in the sky over Yorkshire, Douglas Skyraider, Seafire – the Naval version of the Spitfire, Jungmeister, Harvard, T28 Fennec plus the excitement of the Twister Due aerobatic display and the daredevil stunts of the Breitling Wing Walkers!
