Wings & Wheels event Bank Holiday weekend
Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 August will see Dunsfold Park near Guildford in Surrey come alive to the roar of engines for the 2015 demonstration of flying and supercars.
Visitors to Wings & Wheels can enjoy the world-famous Red Arrows, RAF Eurofighter Typhoon, RAF Eurofighter Typhoon & Spitfire (Synchro Pair), Vulcan, Chinook, The Blades and a host of other modern and historic aircraft during the five-hour flying displays. For four and two wheeled fans, supercars and classic and vintage icons will put on an awe-inspiring display of power and speed on the Top Gear track in a two-hour auto spectacular from Brooklands Museum, and over in the Wheels Zone you can expect an array of interactive and static displays.
The show also includes over twenty five fixed-price catering outlets, two bars, hospitality facilities, free on-site parking, public camping, lost children point, disabled access, informative show commentary, opportunities to meet the pilots, official show merchandise and grandstand seating.
As if that’s not enough, the show will have not one but two Hawk T2s in the line-up and the team will delight crowds with its display.
This is one of only a handful of shows to have the Hawks’ full display, with pilots Flight Lieutenant Ben Polwin and Flight Lieutenant Toby Keeley flying Ninja 1 and Ninja 2 respectively. The role demonstration aims to present the dynamic capability of the Hawk T2 and provide an insight into UK Military Flying Training System, giving the public and future generations of pilots an idea of what to expect during RAF fast jet flying training.
Jamie McAllister, Event Director, comments: “With the Hawk’s historical links to the aerodrome, it’s always a pleasure to see the team back in the skies over Dunsfold. The display they are planning is not only loud and visually impressive, but the skill with which the pilots handle their jets will ensure it’s a display our visitors won’t want to miss!”
The display will showcase a variety of manoeuvres, from close formation to simulated attacks and basic air combat; exactly the type of flying that students practice to set them up for their future careers in the Typhoon, Tornado GR4 and eventually F-35.
Wings & Wheels 2015 will be assisting the fundraising efforts of Brooklands Museum Trust and Help for Heroes.
The event will be held over the August Bank holiday weekend; Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th August 2015, at Dunsfold Park near Guildford, Surrey, and is open to spectators from 09:00 until 21:00.
Advanced rate tickets from £22 for adults or £50 for a family. Single child tickets (for children aged 5 – 15) will be £7. Children under 5 go free.
