Historic aircraft and competition cars, classic road cars and military machines will converge on Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire for the weekend of June 24th - 25th 2016, when Flywheel returns to the UK's best-preserved Second World War bomber station. Showcasing the best in aviation, motorsport, motoring and military history inQ a uniquely atmospheric and intimate setting, this family friendly nostalgia-fest brings together a fantastic range of entertainment to appeal to all ages.
Last year's festival saw hundreds of historic cars, aircraft, motorbikes and military vehicles come alive on the demonstration track and in the sky at the UK's best preserved Second World War Bomber Station, Bicester Heritage in Oxfordshire. The crowds were joined by Sir Stirling Moss OBE who, as well as signing autographs, was reunited with a host of his race-winning cars from the 1950s and 1960s.
While the theme is being kept closely under wraps, visitors are guaranteed an event that is even bigger and better than the two that have gone before. Plans are already firmly underway for the 2017 event, with organisers keen to further grow the attractions and increase the number of vehicles on display and demonstration.
