Events at Stow Maries
Evening vintage flying event
Come and see vintage and modern aircraft flying in to visit this unique WW1 aerodrome for our first evening flying event of the year. Period music will take us back to the time of the Great War, so sit and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy this fantastic family day out in Essex.
The evening will feature a flying display by the WW1 reproduction aircraft of the WW1 Aviation Heritage Trust, The Tiger Club Turbulent Display Team and other vintage aircraft.
Members of the living history group, The Great War Society, will be giving demonstrations of WW1 RFC flying equipment, capturing the character and humour of the WW1 airmen.
Learn more about early flight training technology as on the evening we will launch a unique WW1 pilot trainer the “Rocking Nacelle”.
Delicious food and refreshments available in our Airmen’s Mess – eat inside or outside whilst watching the display. Why not drive your own vintage vehicle to the aerodrome to be part of the atmosphere?
Visitors by air please PPR as usual to: 07860 345403
All flying is subject to weather and serviceability.
