We are delighted to announce that there will be a flypast of both a Lancaster Bomber and a Dakota during the Swaton Vintage Day on Sunday 25 June 2017, courtesy of the Royal Air Force.
Estimated flypast times will be published on our website nearer the date and offers a great photo opportunity for those interested in these legendary vintage planes.
The Lancaster is the most famous and successful RAF heavy bomber of World War Two. It is a legend that lives on today and the contribution made by the aircraft and its crews to the freedom of our nation will, hopefully, never be forgotten. The prototype Lancaster took to the air for its first flight from Woodford, Manchester, on 9th January 1941; the first production Lancaster flew later that year on 31st October.
The Dakota is without doubt one of the most successful aircraft designs in history. It became one of the world’s most famous military transport aircraft and saw widespread use by the Allies during World War Two and subsequently by Air Forces and civilian operators worldwide.
Entrance to the Swaton Vintage Day costs £5 for adults, £4 for OAP’s, £3 for school age children, £12 for a family ticket and free under five years.
