FRIDAY 5th to SUNDAY 7th AUGUST 2016

This year’s event is based around Compton Abbas Airfield in Dorset. Situated in the glorious Dorset countryside this busy airfield is a joy to visit. Saturday 6th August is vintage aircraft fly-in day, an annual event that attracts all manner of vintage planes and enthusiasts.

We shall be based in the Shaftesbury area, famous for Golden Hill, setting for the Hovis adverts. It is a most interesting town with of course some steep hills. Zig Zag hill is the most notorious and it will feature in a scenic run that will take place.

Once again the formula is that you book your own accommodation according to your needs.

Campers/Caravans and Motorhomes the best choice is Blackmore Vale Camping  SP7 9PX just outside Shaftesbury. Plenty of room and a choice of glamping buildings if you wish. Campsite contact 01747 851 523 or 07436 791800  Mention MTWC.
