Day two was unbearably hot, and other than a couple of trips along the flight line for pictures, I spent most of the day in hangar 2 where there was some solid shade. There were several Austers that flew in to the event and with those resident at the airfield, they numbered around eight. The good weather allowed plenty of flying on both days. Not having a tent or Jeep, we were able to make a quick getaway at 5pm. There's a classic car meet there in September, so I may take the Jeep down for that instead.

Croft Nostalgia - August 3~5th

We had a busy weekend at Croft with both Jeeps. I'm about to start posting the full report in my GPW thread, but to keep the chronology of this thread correct, I'm adding one picture here; the 'RAF 100' display, of which my Jeeps were a part.

Ryhope Engines Museum - August 26/27th

This is the second year for the show at this site, but our first time at this location. For many years, the show was held at the Durham Light Infantry Museum, until the museum was closed.

Image

Our last DLI show was 2015. The show missed 2016 while looking for a new venue, and began in 2017 at Ryhope. Ryhope Pumping Station which was built in 1868 to supply water to the Sunderland area. The station ceased operation in 1967 - after 100 years of continuous use. The Museum is now regarded as one of the finest industrial monuments in the North East of England, and is in a Grade II (starred) listed building. Although the station no longer pumps water, the two 100 horsepower beam engines are kept in working order by volunteer members of the Ryhope Engines Trust.

Numbers were down a great deal from the days of the DLI show. Perhaps the year break from the show made people look for other shows to attend over the bank holiday, or perhaps it was just the wet weather on the first day?

Either way, we enjoyed the new site and the mesmerising huge beam engines. We spent quite some time in the blacksmiths workshop, and got to help the blacksmith making a mini horse shoe.

"Jessie" also clocked up 15,000 miles in my ownership on the way home on day one and "Hope" had almost reached 800 miles by the end of day two. Hopefully, given time, the show can grown back to its former numbers.

Someday I'll get to see your vehicles but I bet you not out and about with them when I'm at Lindisfarne later this month.
