  • Ferndown Fete AirShow 2019

    B25 Mitchell

    Ferndown Fete on the Field 2019 was bigger than ever this year

    Again Wimborne MAC was asked to support this annual event with static and model flying displays.  With the gratefully accepted help and support from club members we had a good static display and flying displays from various types of aricraft the likes of sebart Wind 110's, Super Chipmunk, B25 Mitchell with Spitfire escort and a number of Korean War 50's  MIG versus F86 Sabres EDF jet flight.

    All this on the lower field meanwhile in the main arena club  members had an Information Centre, Flight Simulator and more static displays.  Here members of the public can use the flight sim and ask questions about our club and hobby.

  • Ferndown Library Hobbies Day

    Ferndown Library Stand

    Wimborne MAC were invited by the Ferndown Library in Dorset to attend their annual Hobbies Day on April 11th 2019.  We were given ample space to set up our stand to promote our hobby, our club and the BMFA.  We took various model aircraft to show the types of models that can be flown from Scale Jets to Trainers.  On show to the public were a small BAe Hawk electric jet, a high wing trainer and a large scale turbine Hawker Hunter minus the wings due to space restrictions.

     

  • Open Scale Day 2019

    This year it actually happened on the day planned!

    The weather was near perfect for our WMAC Open Scale Day on Saturday 14th. Very early starts for a few of us, final mow of runway, road signs to be located, field layout marked out and a central communication tent set up. By the time the early volunteer starters had finished their tasks by about 8.30 some vehicles were starting to arrive and unload their models and the flight line was now beginning to fill up with a wide range range of scale models.

     

  • Scale Day 2 of 2016

    P47 SNAFU

    Scale Day 2 was blessed with a bright sunny September Sunday after the washout of previous Saturday. Quite a reasonable turnout although more pilots were expected. Numbers may have been down due to holidays. We had members from Salisbury MFC and Wincanton too. Unfortunately, due to a lack of a tug after an issue on Slim Gregory Day we did not have any scale glider models arrive on site. However, a number of members just came to watch the flying and picnic including friendly banter. There were also a couple of visitors and families who seeing the road signs came up to watch too.

    With quite a wide range of models flying there was eyecandy for everyone. From WW1 biplanes, British and German to WWII fighters, the venerable Spitfire and the P47 Jug (on it's maiden flight) to Korean and Cold War jets.
