Kemble steps into the breach as UKs biggest vintage event to be resurrected in 2009

AFTER the disappointing news in February that the Great Vintage Flying

Weekend was being reluctantly cancelled after 11 years, it has been

announced that the event will be resurrected next year at Kemble.

Kemble Air Services now own the G-VFWE brand although the previous

organisers will continue to be instrumental in the organisation of the


Booker, who has run the event since it started at Shoreham in 1996,

told pilotweb, “It’s official. I’m delighted that it’s signed, sealed

and delivered. The event will be held at Kemble next year.

“I could only mothball it for so long. Kemble is a nice big airfield

and it’s not the first time G-VFWE has been there,” he added.An official statement is due to be released immediately. www.gvfwe.co.uk
