Planes

We are fortunate at North Weald to have use of the concrete runway for our flying displays as well as a grass runway. North Weald Airfield is a genuine WW1 airfield with many of its original buildings intact and it is at this wonderful venue that the Wings and Wheels Model Spectacular celebrates its 30th anniversary

It's hard to believe that one hundred years ago an airfield that was used by the Royal Flying Corps in 1916 provides the same venue for what is the longest running model show in the UK Those young WW1 pilots could never have imagined the changes that would take place in the world of aviation, let alone the fact that one day it would be possible to fly a model aeroplane at speeds they could only dream of and all controlled by a man on the ground holding a radio control transmitter! Such is progress! And that progress is more than represented in the range of models on display, every era and type of model aircraft will be flown throughout the weekend from WW1 biplanes to the very latest fast jets.

The runway

All of the aircraft flying are specialist craft of all types, WW1 canvas and string, WW2 warbirds such as Spitfire and Hurricane, civilian craft through the ages all powered by engines which are bigger than most motorcycle engines on our roads.

Other teams will be flying complicated aerobatic schedules in wonderful synchronous manoeuvres leaving shapes in smoke in the sky.
