Goodwood Vintage Fly-in and Air Display

The Goodwood Vintage Fly-in and Air Display, in which the Museum participated as an exhibitor, took place over the Bank Holiday weekend of Sunday May 25th and Monday 26th at Goodwood Airfield. But sadly the Weather Gods just weren’t on the side of the organisers. The Sunday dawned wet and breezy as a low pressure system moved up from the South. Although this had largely cleared Goodwood by mid morning the associated low clouds and reduced visibility lingered over the hills and country to the North making it impossible for the many visiting aircraft scheduled to attend the Fly-in to get through, and resulting in over 100 cancellations. By mid afternoon the skies over Goodwood were blue and the reduced crowds enjoyed a fine flying display by the display aircraft that had arrived the previous day – which included a Spitfire, Mustang, Pembroke, Cosmic Wind, Pilatus P2, Hawker Hunter, Foster Wickner Wicko, and many others including a fine collection of radio controlled models.

Then the bad weather moved in again overnight. Strong winds and around 40mm of rain waterlogged the airfield (Goodwood is an all grass airfield and has no hard runways) and battered the Museum’s new marquee to the ground. The organisers were left with no option but to cancel the second day completely – a great shame for all concerned.
