Flywheel Festival 2016 – What’s on
The first Flywheel Festival was held in June 2015 and proved a huge success. Thousands of spectators flocked to see the amazing displays in the air and on the track. Show visitors were given the chance to get up close to an exciting range of rarely seen military vehicles, aircraft and rare racing cars.
Highlights included the return to the former RAF Bicester of the Blenheim bomber for the first time in over 70 years, spectacular air displays from the iconic Spitfire, WW1 dog fight demonstrations from the Great War Display Team, a flame-throwing Bentley-Packard special with a 41-litre engine, a historic Sherman M4 tank, the ex-Stirling Moss C-type, exhilarating performances from the aircraft-engined 1905 Fiat land speed record car, while vintage glider rides, a ‘pop-up’ period fashion shoot and military re-enactors really brought the history of the site alive.
