A celebration of wings and wheels at Bicester Heritage
Bicester Heritage once again played host to the wonderful Flywheel Festival over the weekend of July 24/25, drawing bigger crowds than ever.
Based on the site of the former RAF Bicester, Bicester Heritage is now the best-preserved – possibly the only preserved – Second World War era RAF Bomber station, with its historic hangars and buildings now home to many companies associated with classic cars and aircraft.
For the third year running the Flywheel Festival has turned the clock back to celebrate the story of motoring and aviation centred on this iconic airfield.
Although I live just a half hour drive from Bicester I had not been to Flywheel before, so thought that this was the year to do it, and I'm glad I did.
