RECORD breaking numbers attended The Museum of Army Flying’s flagship annual event, Wartime Wallop 2017, at Middle Wallop on Bank Holiday Monday, May 29.

Nearly 1,000 people visited the event, around 20% up on last year. Aircraft, both contemporary and historic, military vehicles, flying displays, 1940s music and dancing, wartime re-enactment groups and children’s entertainment were all part of the event. Visitors had the chance to get up close to current military helicopters, as well as more veteran aircraft including a Sioux, Beaver and Scout.

Other attractions on the day included model flying, bomb disposal demonstrations, a crowd pleasing fly-out from the HAF (Historic Aircraft Flight) team, as well as 1940s style dancing by the Andover Lindyhoppers, and wartime-era music and dancing from the Decibelles.
