The wet weather failed to deter hardy re-enactors from putting on a show at The Helicopter Museum in Weston.

The tourist attraction hosted its Cadillacs and ‘Copters event on Sunday where visitors could explore vintage vehicles and restored helicopters.

Although the wet weather meant fewer cars were on display than at its May event, and flights had to be cancelled, its organisers told the Mercury it was a big success.

American vehicles including a Ford Thunderbird and a Californian lorry cab were on show against the backdrop of the museum’s recently-restored World War Two control tower.

The event featured military vehicles for the first time thanks to the Vietnam War re-enactment group Rolling Thunder, which attended with a Vietnam-era truck.

The event is set to return to the museum, in Locking Moor Road, in May 2018.
