MVs turned out in force to help our friends at Sywell Aviation Museum when they reopened after a winter refit. It was cold but mainly sunny and a visiting 1944 Spitfire Mk XI – the only one flying on the world – crowned a great day.
In addition to the MVT, the locally-based TTS group and the Tommy Atkins Society also brought vehicles and displays.
In total there were 18 Jeeps, a Land Rover Defender Ambulance, Land Rover Lightweight, Karrier K6, Bedford MW, Austin Champ, Dodge WC52, DAF 66YA, Plymouth Sedan, Auto Union Munga, Dodge Ram, BSA M20 and a Harley-Davidson WLC.
The museum’s Ben Brown said: “As ever a massive thank-you to you all for kindly supporting the Museum Grand Opening. You know how much it means to us  - we really appreciate it - and we've had loads of positive feedback from our visitors. We also had sun and I think this year we managed to feed everyone … on time!
"Best wishes to you all for a terrific season.”
