    Wings & Wheels 2019 15&16th June

    Had and emails from the Wings & Wheels organisers.

    For its 15th Show, Wings & Wheels is returning to its original 2005 spot in June. The airshow will now take place on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June 2019.

    The decision to change the date was made following the announcement that the Red Arrows will be on tour in North America throughout August and September and after consultation with exhibitors, participants, volunteers and visitors.

    We’ve thought carefully about changing the date of Wings & Wheels to ensure that we are able to continue to put on the very best show for visitors. We had to consider a number of things, including what exhibitors and air displays would be available in August vs June and have concluded that a return to the show’s roots in June is a positive step for the airshow.

    We are now moving forward and planning the June show and the Wheels Zone is open for participants to enter by visiting our website or clicking on this link:

    Beaulieu is o Fathers day which is the 16th June. So perhaps we should get the wings and wheels club stand for the Saturday.

    Who wants to go on the Saturday 15th June?

    I would definitely like to do Beaulieu as I love it there and we missed it this year due to a holiday booking fudge up. Not sure I can commit just yet to doing Wings & Wheels on Saturday as well. I haven't been to W&W before, but it looks great. I remember us all cruising to a show at Dunsfold a few years back. It was a great show but with no flying, although the queue to get out was monumental! It seemed to take forever. Assuming it's at the same venue, hopefully that has been sorted?

    Your thinking of the infamous change to Wheels Day. Wings n’ Wheels has not had those issues to my knowledge.

    Yeah, it probably depended on the time and quantity of people leaving I guess. Wish I could have said the same! From what I recall they seemed to be stopping cars from leaving via what seemed like the most logical exits and instead directing us all around the perimeter of the venue.

    You are right, Dunsfold had huge traffic issues at a show. That show was when Wheels Day was hosted there. I think a couple of thousand cars went there. There were queues out to the gate, then them not charging some people as they were trying to get cars off the road quicker. However Wings & Wheels is quite a bit different, there are a handful of club stands of around 20 cars on each, and individual entries are probably only about 200. There are loads of food stalls and some other great things to walk around, so good to keep the women busy. Then there is the air show, that is fantastic (I havn't been to many). So a lot of things going on, and not so many cars., a great day out. No traffic issues getting in or out, and very well organised and marshalled.

    The wheels Days event at Dunsfold was made infamous by the unexpected number of cars.
    Wheels day is typically <3000. They budgeted for 6000 with the change in venue and IIRC got 18000!
    I don’t think anyone foresaw that and I certainly don’t hold it against the organisers.

    I think Wings and Wheels works better as you don't get hoards of cars turning up on the day as most people have pre-bought tickets.

    2014 Wheels day was at Dunsfold, a few photos Sarah took https://www.solent-renegades.co.uk/m...ay-2014-a.html. We didn't have any trouble getting out, left about 3pm.
