PARHAM AIRFIELD MUSEUM
SUNDAY 1st JULY 2007
This year's annual Open Day took place on Sunday 1st July in conjunction with the National Vintage Military Vehicles Association. A large collection of trucks, jeeps and a couple of tanks were on display.
Auxiliary Unit demonstration
The high spot of the day was the Auxiliary Unit Patrol demonstration delivered by the Pontefract Home Guard Living History Unit. A bit of artistic licence was needed. The demo took place in broad daylight before a crowd of onlookers, not exactly an Auxilier's natural habitat. The blanks and pyrotechnics made for a lively re-enactment though.
The plane-spotters were thoroughly entertained by a spectacular fly-past by the B17 Flying Fortress Sally B and her Mustang escort from Duxford. Sadly, my camera couldn't do them justice.
The first Parham Museum Open Day took place on 4th July 2004.
