The AVRO Heritage Museum, based at the site of the former Woodford Aerodrome. is holding a special Air Fair this weekend of 7th and 8th of July, featuring fly-pasts from the BBMF Lancaster bomber, as well as flight simulators, helicopters, and many classic vehicles.
Woodford Aerodrome was owned by BAE Systems until 2011, and was a hub of aircraft design and construction, with the famous Nimrod aircraft also being built there, and Concorde aircraft also regularly landing at the airfield. The Avro Heritage Trust was created following the closure of BAE’s operations at the site, with the aim of preserving the site’s rich aviation history for future generations. The Museum – located in the Aerodrome’s former fire station – was opened in 2015, and has gone from strength to strength since then.
The show will include a display of classic cars and motorcycles – if you have one check out the website for further info.
