Ploughs to Propellers 2005

This is a 1940s weekend, so had a small number of most exhibits that you would see at a Rally with the theme squarely on the 40s There is a lot to see for the 40s enthusiast from the Control Tower Museum and new Nissan hut exhibitions to plenty of  Military exhibits which truly gave a feel for what it was like during WW11 when Rougham Airfield played a part in the Battle of Britain and if you are a Willis Jeep enthusiast there were plenty there.

The "Silver Bird Disco" was there on Sunday and when it revs its engines and "Takes off" with all the ladies in 40s dress waving goodbye it brings a lump to your throat. The dancers that always appear whenever the disco is around put up there usual excellent display of 40s dancing to music such as that of  Glenn Miller and the big bands, so if you like a good day out in your 40s dress, come along next year.
