Boys Toys – A day out for dads on Father’s Day – 15 June 2014

Held in the grounds of the Hylands Estate in Chelmsford, Essex, this event offered everything dad would enjoy on a day out; a Spitfire, a Hurricane, motorbike stunts, monster trucks and ……. other eye candy! The aviation aspect of the event involved Peter Teichman displaying both his Hangar 11 Hurricane and Spitfire from nearby North Weald airfield. He had hoped to land in front of Hylands House on a specially prepared landing strip but the wind was in the wrong direction. Peter arrived overhead in Hurricane ‘Pegs’ in the morning to display, following which he took a look at the situation before deciding on the safety of North Weald.

He then arrived by road and took the stage to inform the public of his decision. He later returned to display in the Spitfire XI.

There were plenty of other attractions for dad and families, though once again the weather could have been better and probably reduced the numbers attending.

It is hoped that the runway may be used for flying events in the future.
