Today was the formal VIP opening. The Guest of Honour was Sir Charles Masefield who delivered an entertaining speech about his history at Chadderton and performing his final landing when delivering XM603 to Woodford.
At 11:45 the Anson was spot on time and after that the Large Model Association entertained guests with a spirited display of some of their aircraft.
