A strong wind and threatened rain meant there were no warbirds visiting Sywell Aviation Museum for its Easter Saturday opening. But plenty of MVs supported the event with a dozen or so Jeeps, Dodge, a brace of Jimmies, two Land Rovers and two BSA WM20s. Also in attendance were the MVT's Huntingdon area, TTS, Brixworth Home Guard and elements of the Tommy Atkins Society. A special presentation was made to Carolyn Grace who has built a hangar next to the museum to hold her Spitfire, Seafire and other warbirds.
