The show, being held during the weekend of 16-17 June in Langworth near Lincoln, is a mix of vintage vehicles and classic aircraft. As part of the weekend, visitors can have a go at wingwalking for themselves, with a limited number of training flights available in a 1940s Boeing Stearman Biplane.

The experience includes a full safety brief and walk through the practice display.  Once airborne you will take part in a 10 minute display practice in front of friends and family including fly pasts at various angles of bank and finish with a zoom climb from 135 mph. After landing you will receive a certificate confirming you are a trained wing walker.
