Stapleford Private Aviation Day

Glorious sunshine marked Stapleford Park’s first Aviation Day, which saw helicopters, former Red Arrows pilots, the last Vulcan bomber and Melton Mowbray’s Model Aircraft Society all sharing the same airspace. A Land Rover terrapod showcasing the new Evoque, a champagne reception for the women at the Cavell’s makeover show and an enlightening talk by Jim Turner, recently appointed Squadron Leader of the Red Arrows, ensured there was just as much entertainment on the ground. The day was headlined by The Blades, whose daredevil air acrobatics had everyone’s necks craned.
