Dozens of classic vehicles will be on display in Weston this weekend.

The Helicopter Museum, in Locking Moor Road, will hold a Vintage Wheels Rally on Sunday.

Cars, buses, bikes and even a fire engine will line up around the control tower and pilot block to be seen by visitors.

Organiser Peter Michallat said: “We are expecting a wide range of vehicles on display including Hillman Imps, Classic MGs and some rather unusual four-wheeled surprises.”

Some of the museum’s helicopter cockpits will also be open to the public while people can enjoy a free bus tour of the local area.

Mr Michallat added: “The bus ride will take in all the historical aviation landmarks around the airfield site including the Westland Factories and RAF Locking.

“It will run from the control tower at regular intervals throughout the day.”

The event will run from 10am-2pm.
