This was held over the weekend 15th,16th & 17th of June, attracting thousands of people over the 3 day event.

This is one of the most popular display in the modelling calendar. Spectators and traders were entertained by some of the countries top model flyers, such as Martin Pickering(Spain), Dennis Gutowsky (Germany), Robbie Skipton, Steve Carr, Steve / Matt Bishop to name but a few. Many members of our club were there for either the day or camping for the 3 days. Those that stopped on the Saturday evening were not disappointed as they were entertained with a night show and fireworks display. A full size display also made the line up with a clip wing spitfire (flown by 3 times Red bull Air race champion pilot Paul Bonhomme) & Trig Aerobatic Team. So if you didn't manage to get there this year, make a date for next year, Well recommended.

Another successful LMA Gaydon

Many hundreds of people enjoyed the 8th LMA Gaydon static and trade show. With the show season over this was the last opportunity to stock up on modelling items from the usual suppliers and chat to fellow modellers and pilots about their latest creations. Many large models were on display including a Fokker 90 regional jet powered by 2 turbines and controlled using 6 receivers and 30 servos. Also on display were many fast jet models including a Hawker Hunter, Hawk, Knat and Typhoon. Several very large gliders and their tugs, multiple 1/4 and 1/3 scale warbirds and a wide range of 1/3 scale WWI biplanes. One of the largest models on display was a 1/3rd scale Pucara, twin Turboprop aircraft spanning 15ft and standing 5ft high. It wasn't all about large models. Peter Iliffe was, once again displaying his superb 'peanut' scale models.

There were also throughout the day special talks & workshops with some of the country's top modelling builders & flyers  Mark Hinton Jet airframes and installations, Tony Nijhuis Model aircraft design & Paul Dudley of Kingfisher Aviation.
