15 July. The annual gathering at Tisted in Hampshire was announced on or about 4 February and within days the finite number of aircraft that could be accommodated had been reached with a long waiting list. The fact that the 2017 event has been opened to all-comers, not just vintage aeroplanes, may account for that. Chris Thompson, who organises the event on behalf of the site owners, Libby and Ashwin Hill, says the 'reserve' list is so long that there is little point in registering interest, but just in case, this is the address on which to find a form:

16 July. Best of British at North Weald. The theme of our Community Day & Fly-in this year is ‘Best of British'. We are inviting owners of classic British aeroplanes to attend.
