Monday 28th May 2018 saw the Southern Area BMFA once again support the Museum of Army Flying with their Wartime Wallop themed Family Fun Day. A large and impressive static display of many types of model aircraft from FPV Drone Racer through Helicopters, Free Flight, Sport/Scale/Sailplane models, Turbine models to impressive 33% International Miniature Aerobatic Club (IMAC) & 33% Scale Tiger Moth aircraft.
The static display was supported by 3.5 hours of flying demonstrations in near ideal weather conditions apart from the very early part of the display when the 700-800ft cloudbase, formed after the fog had burnt off, limited the vertical manoeuvres possible.
The cloud quickly dissipated into a very warm and sunny day with many attendees saying they ended up a bit red by the end of the day (note for next year, make sure more sunscreen cream is available).
