    2017 Season

    Stephenson Railway Museum 1940's Event - May 1st


    My first event of the season was meant to be the Yorkshire MVT Crank Up to York centre, but an MOT failure of the normal car on Friday, forced a weekend of unexpected car shopping as repair costs may be higher than the worth of the 12 year old vehicle. The Bank Holiday Monday however was free, and allowed us to get to the Stephenson Railway Museum for their first 1940's event. The weather was breezy but bright, and after a weekend of brain numbing car facts and figure comparisons, it was nice to just relax, listen to the music and ride the train.









    Next weekend, I'm Jeeping off to Breighton Airfield again for their Spring Fly-In.

    Breighton Airfield Aaerobatics Comp and Aerojumble Fly-In - May 6/7th

    My normal car was off the road, so my trip to Breighton was by Jeep! I was going to camp for the weekend, so for the first time in a few years, towed the jeep trailer with Jessie, after swapping all the bulbs back to 24 volts. The drive down on Friday saw nice blue sky, but on Saturday morning, passing low cloud interrupted the aerobatics competition, eventually resulting in its cancellation. There were however, many nice aircraft to look at, even if not all flew during the weekend.

    On Sunday, it was a Fly-In and Aerojumble, and I had a stall selling some of my Aviation Model Art pictures ( see below ). I had a few sales and a number of orders placed for other aircraft, some of which were based at Breighton. The low cloud persisted, but there were still a number of unusual aircraft flew in to visit for the day.

    My trade stand and three examples of the model art I was selling, a Yak18a, based at Breighton with the Real Aeroplane Company, the de Havilland DH.88 Comet England-Australia air racer and a Miles Magister, also Breighton based.

    Here's some of Sunday's visitors.









    The 3 hour drive home was uneventful but tiring, but it had been an enjoyable weekend.

    Blyth Battery Goes to War - May 20/21st

    Blyth Battery was built during WW1 to protect the port of Blyth. It was upgraded and enlarged in WW2. Today, volunteers maintain the Battery as a museum and hold a number of events. Blyth Battery Goes to War is their main event of the year.

    With the amount of heavy rain on Saturday, I think the event should have been "Blyth Battery Goes to Sea". It didn't rain all day, but when the thundery showers hit, the rain made the most of the opportunity. Saturday is always the quiet day, but there were still a fair number of public wandering around the sea front and a nice selection of WW2 and Post War vehicles were there. Day two had more settled weather, but the wind turned in from the sea, making it colder than expected. There were a few extra vehicles the second day, and a few less under covers!

    "Jessie" with part of the battery behind.

    Normally, I take the Dodge to Blyth, but with the cold wet start to Spring this year, and any work needing to be done outdoors on the drive way, I haven't had the opportunity to give it its service yet.

    The North East Land Sea and Air Museum were there with their Morane-Saulnier replica project.
