South Essex Armed Forces Day Event – Barleylands Farm – 22 June 2014

Following on from the success of the 2013 event at Rayleigh the South Essex AFD team went on to organise a larger such show in grounds of Barleylands Farm near Billericay, Essex. The surrounding open fields allowed for full air displays rather than the previous flypasts, and these included a full nine aircraft appearance by the Great War Display Team – fittingly operating from the WWI aerodrome of Stow Maries – and the first three-ship display by the Gnats Display Team with yellow schemed G-MOUR as the latest addition.

Ground attractions included the IMPS motorcycle team, Blue Falcons gymnasts, army demonstrations, dog agility, cadet bands and singers (Charlotte Meldrum pictured) and comedians. The following is a photographic round-up of the 2014 event, which will hopefully be repeated in years to come.
