The museum, based in Locking Moor Road, hosted its second Cadillacs and ‘Copters event on Sunday.

Around 50 American cars were put on display, including Mustangs, Studebakers, Chevrolets, and, of course, Cadillacs.

Many of the vehicles exhibited are the only examples of their type this side of the Atlantic.

The museum also opened up several of its American helicopters so they could be seen up close, including a ‘Huey’ helicopter used in Vietnam.

The museum’s Huey was shot down twice during the Vietnam War, and was patched up both times so it could be flown again.

Some visitors also went on experience flights on a helicopter to see Weston from above.
