Its like being transported back in time...hundreds of WW2 soldiers (and medics, landgirls, ladies and gents) parade around an enormous site (4 fields +) putting on reenactments complete with mortar fire and bombing raids! The air display - including the only remaining flying Lancaster...Spitfires and Messerschmidts....is spectacular and incredibly noisy, including dive bombs, loop the loops - very innvocative of the terror these engine noises must have struck into civilians in the day. Military and classic vehicles galore, explosions, and many stalls selling genuine WW2 artefacts and paraphernalia (even well preserved and exquisitely scented....... SS standard issue shaving soap!!) - the ladies can even have their hair done in a 40's up-do I can thoroughly recommend this, especially for lovers of fancy dress - vintage 40's clothing for all ages and both sexes. Just don't take nervous dogs...there's alot going on!!

Great day out with loads to see and do, plenty of stands, vehicles and planes, no getting ripped off with food and drink either when your inside although a little strand when you find yourself standing having a pint with a member of the S S Liebstandarte! Go you will love it.

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and might go again next year. It was a little light on the air side though and more aircraft would be nice. The loss of the Vulcan display left a major hole in the Sunday display which wasn't filled. Still good fun though and good value for money.
