A new event at the museum for 2011, the inaugural 'Props and Pistons' was a huge success. 

There were around seventy cars in attendance, with values from £20,000 to £1,000,000 plus appearances from historic aircraft including two Lancasters, two Spitfires, two Mustangs, a Chipmunk, Stearman, Harvard, DH.2 and a WWII veteran Dakota. A noteworthy visitor parked slightly out of reach of the crowd line was N3864, a superbly presented vintage Ryan Navion B.

The 2012 event is scheduled to take place on August 27th.
