Sally-B this Sunday

Wartime B17 Flying Fortress, Sally-B, will be a visitor to Manston this coming Sunday lunchtime as part of a ceremony to mark the airfield's vital role in the Second World War and as a tribute to the 79,000 Allied air personnel that died in the conflict.
She's bound to be a little noisier than the other traffic as she flies low-level circuits of the island but I'm sure that on this occasion, residents won't mind too much.

On Tuesday May 22nd watch out for two P51 Mustang fighters from the same vintage as Sally-B. These will perform a fifteen minute display over the Grand Turk saling ship as she leaves Ramsgate harbour. The display is free but donations to Cancer Care Appeal are welcomed.
