August Bank Holiday

Aircraft enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the world’s oldest twin-engined jet aircraft, the Air Atlantique Classic Flight’s Meteor T7, is down to fly at Dunsfold’s 'Wings and Wheels' event over the forthcoming UK Bank Holiday 26-27 August.  The Meteor saw service in World War II.  This example was built in 1949, making its last flight for the RAF in 1963 and not returning to the air until 2011 after a 20-year restoration programme.

The Meteor appearance is only one part of a busy programme and flying display that includes the Avro Vulcan, Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.  For those interested in motoring, in all its aspects, there is a huge display of vehicles covering the whole of the 20th century, military and civilian.

Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey, eight miles south of Guildford, was a former Canadian Air Force Base and British Aerospace (BAe) site.  It is now the home of BBC Top Gear.
