Fishburn Airfield Fly/Drive-In - August 14/15th

The weather looked good for the first day of the Fishburn event. It was my Dodge's long awaited return to public life, having last been on show at Tanfield Railway in 2019. It would also turn out to be the last time it was seen in public as a Flying Control vehicle. It was around a twenty minute drive to the airfield, of which a few minutes are shown in the video below, shot on three action cameras - two on the Dodge and one of the Jeep.  Considering there were several large or popular shows on the same weekend, there was a reasonable turnout of military vehicles, mostly WW2. There was also a three quarter size Jeep converted from a ride on lawn mower. In addition to the aircraft on the live side of the airfield, there were a few static examples from the Aircraft Restoration Group on display and open to the public. Sunday was a calm day, but almost none stop drizzle. Vehicle numbers were halved in both classics and military and there was no flying at all. One or two different vehicles, but overall, a dull damp day.
