As in previous years, I've made a picture summary of this year's season in my MV's. It's been a very busy year, attending 17 public events and had 5 other outings, photoshoots and historic sites, split between my three vehicles. This year, I've dropped the colour pictures in favour of a vintage photo album look.

We started out at the beginning of February, playing out in the snow.


I missed the York Crank up due to illness, so my first event was in late April, at the Heugh Battery in Hartlepool.


Next was Durham City 1940's Day in May.


"Against the Odds" was the following week at the Yorkshire Air Museum.


Another week on was "Blyth Battery Goes to War."

The Jeep for day one......


.....and the Dodge on day two.


To finish the non-stop events of May was the "Lanc, Tank & Military Machines" at East kirkby airfield.


From there we continued South to Suffolk, staying with Clive Stevens for a few days. "Jessie" was in good company.


We did a bit of airfield touring.


The 95th Bomb Group airfield, Horham was one of those near by.


I visited one of my old R/C B-17's which has been living at the 100th Bomb Group Museum at Thorpe Abbotts for 24 years now.


We made it back home during the first week of June, in time for the Northallerton 1940's day.


See the next post for part 2........

We were now into mid June with six events and several airfield visits undertaken. The Tanfield Railway Steam Gala was a week after Northallerton. We took my daughter's "My Little Pony" model railroad on day one and the Jeeps on day two.


Barnard Castle was another week on and a trip out for the Dodge again.


One more week took us to Bowes Railway and Springwell Village 1940's weekend.


The first weekend in July saw a new local event at Aln Valley Railway.


We then had a weekend off prior to the Breighton Airfield Summer Fly-In.


The event at Croft Circuit in August, was the last one after a ten year run.


Ten days later I was at a photoshoot to raise awareness of a WW2 site at Boldon, that locals want to restore as a museum.


Both Jeeps were at Beamish for their four day 1940's event at the end of August.


Another new event was a 1940's day at Sandtoft airfield in Lincolnshire in mid September.


My last public event as at Tanfield Railway again, this time for their 1940's weekend in September.  M201 & Dodge for day one......


.....and both Jeeps for day two.


Our last event in October, was more of a private display, visiting Blackfell school again.
