home to the Bidford Gliding and Flying Club. On the 28th May, Bank Holiday Monday, the club is holding its 6th Classic Wings and Wheels
Event in support of local children’s groups; Bidford Youth & Junior
Football Clubs who are desperate for funds and are volunteering at the event.
There will be a dedicated area of the Airfield for Classic Cars and a similar fenced off area for visiting and resident aircraft. Following
previous year’s successes, several car clubs are displaying, together
with numerous classic aircraft and tractors. The RAF expect to perform a Spitfire Flypast.
At lunchtime the air park will be opened to the public. Take a close
look at the planes and chat to the pilots. Hot & cold refreshments are
available all day and the licenced Bar from noon. Raffle prizes include
several flights in gliders/powered aircraft donated from BGFC members.
