Gazelle 50 Fly-in, Middle Wallop 08/04/2017

Post by Hammy » Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:06 pm


With the Aerospatiale Gazelle having first taken flight on 7th April 1967, we're celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a gathering of 'screaming chicken legs' at their spiritual home in the UK, AAC Middle Wallop.

The event is advanced ticket only and tickets can be purchased from the Museum of Army Flying website and everything you need to know about the event can be found on the Threshold.aero website

We're still waiting to receive confirmation from QinetiQ and, surprisingly, the AAC. As soon as we receive confirmation from these or any other operators, we will let you know.
