The first “Thunder Day” of the 2013 Season will take place this coming Sunday 7th April, so put the date in your Diary!
The Fire Team will once again kick start the activities with the chance for ‘kids of all ages’ to have some fun with the fire hoses and try and knock a few bollards over. See if you can do it without getting wet!
But “Thunder Day” is all about making some noise and for the event, the following aircraft will take part. During the late morning, the SE5a WWI bi-plane fighter followed by the De Havilland Devon twin prop, which will perform a short taxi after roaring spectacularly into life, usually accompanied by a plume of blue exhaust smoke! Quite normal, but great for photographers!
After a break to enjoy a hearty Sunday Roast in our popular ‘NAAFI’, it will be time for the big jets to be powered up. At 13:45pm, the ‘mighty hunter’ Nimrod MR2 XV250 will have her four Rolls Royce Speys fired up and at 14:30pm, the Victor V-Force XL231 “Lusty Lindy” will let her four Rolls Royce Conways bellow their tune! It could be that the teams try to out do each other with the noise, so the ground will shake!
These occasions have become very popular with our visitors, as it gives a great chance to see and hear these historic aircraft at close quarters.
