                           http://www.wingsnwheels.net/

With the vast majority of trade spaces booked and lots of pilots and stunning models confirmed, the 25th Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular is looking to live up to its reputation once again. Do make sure you check the Trader's page regularly to see who will be attending as well as our Flying page to get a flavour of what you can expect at this landmark show. The flying displays are almost completed and there is some stunning machinery that will take to the air over North Weald this year!

WINGS & WHEELS HITS ITS QUARTER CENTURY!

2011.....25 years since the first Wings & Wheels took to the air!  It has certainly seen some major changes in modelling techniques and trends and we will be reflecting some of those changes along with a few trips down memory lane! For example, not only do we have the original Tiger Team that flew at the very first Wings & Wheels but also the very latest technology in the guise of the Wi-Fi controlled Parrot AR Drone - Check out our Flying 2011 pages to see a few of the other models that will be flown this year.

thanks for those Martin.....it is stunningly beautiful.......an incredible piece of work...........can't think of anything else to say about it except WOW!!!

off to look at the youtube now.

cheers, neil.

the videos are as amazing, especially his working crane and launch.

they must have felt invincible sailing on a vessel like her............and what a sad end she came too..........aground at ( I think) Start Point, Devon awaiting the cutters torch...ignominious indeed.
