Memorial Flight to perform at Flywheel event


A series of fly-by displays from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight have been announced for Flywheel, which takes place at Bicester Heritage on July 2-3, 2016.

The flypasts will feature a Hurricane and Spitfire on Saturday, and a hopefully the Avro Lancaster on Sunday. These iconic World War Two machines will be a fitting feature at the event, taking to the skies above Bicester Heritage, the UK’s best preserved World War Two bomber station.

Featuring spectacular vintage flying displays and historic motorsport demonstrations, hundreds of classic aircraft, military vehicles, cars and bikes will be on show. Visitors to Flywheel will be able to experience the atmosphere in the open-access paddock, along with watching historic road and racing cars in action on the demonstration track.
