Little Gransden Air & Car Show – Beds, UK – 28 August 2016

Held at the lovely little airfield not far from Cambridge, the annual Little Gransden Air & Car Show raises welcome funds for the BBC’s Children in Need charity. The event suffered from changeable and sometimes extreme weather which caused a few scheduling issues, but as ever the public enjoyed a highly entertaining show which was well attended. A number of World War Two aircraft displayed as did various aerobatic, jet and training machines. Dennis Neville’s Flying Circus provided old ‘Barnstorming’ style antics – flying under a limbo pole, taking penalties against a goalkeeper and bursting balloons with their propellers. The Spitfire display which opened the show was dedicated to the late Terry Wogan.

Little Gransden Air & Car Show – 30 August 2015

As so often in the past, the 2015 running of the Children in Need charity show was unfairly hit by bad weather, with a portion of the show lost to rain and low cloud. It also suffered a number of cancellations, including a final chance to see Vulcan XH558 in this picturesque setting. Even so, the small team managed to serve up a highly enjoyable show raising welcome funds for Pudsey.

Little Gransden Air & Car Show – 24 August 2014

‘The Lancaster Effect’ ensured a sell-out crowd at Little Gransden, and a record attendance amounted to an amazing¬†donation of nearly ¬£64,000 to Children in Need and a further ¬£12,000 to local childrens charities. Dave Poile (pictured at work during the show) and his hard working team put together another packed and eclectic flying program, but it was the appearance by the pair of Lancasters that will live longest in the memory.
