Wheely good time

The Sir Keith Park Memorial Airfield in Thames was packed on January 27. Thousands of people poured in through the gates for the annual Wings and Wheels festival. Spectators wandered among the tidy rows of planes, cars and food trucks between aerial flyovers and musical entertainment. ALICE PARMINTER winged in to catch the action.
