This is always a great August weekend at one of the most famous aircraft museums in the world. This year the rain held off and only provided a couple of showers. On Saturday there are full-size aircraft movements and so the LMA provide a static display. We were treated to some very nice demonstrations of a Corsair.
Model flying took place on the Sunday. This is the only LMA event of the year where spectators have the opportunity of entering the pits area and hence can inspect the models at close quarters. This is always popular and several hundred people came and mingled with the pilots.
Below is a selection of photographs taken on Sunday.
This is a general view in the pits area well. In the foreground is Simon Stegal’s Skyraider. The American flag is on display by the USAAF.

John Saunder’s Polish Policarpov to 25% scale. Powered by a Zenoah 38 and weighing 20lb. It has not yet flown.
The Ghost squadron arrived in force and put out an impressive line-up of their models. Their motorhome and trailer isn’t bad either!
Glen Master’s new model is a 25% scale Mustang from a 3W kit.
