A WINGS and Wheels event so far exceeded expectations that organisers are hoping to repeat the success later in the year.

Hundreds of classic cars, motorbikes, tractors and aeroplanes dropped in at the event at Holbeach St John’s airfield, organised by Fenland Aero Club.

Owner John Wright said: “It was a fantastic event and even the weather was kind. The day before and the day after it rained, but we had fantastic weather on the day.

“It was very well attended and everyone had a good time.”

One of the highlights of the day was a flying visit by a de Havilland Rapide, a large twin engine byplane.
