✈️ We couldn’t have an #aviation celebration without a #plane or 2, could we? ✈️ A model of the #Vimy is sitting proudly within the Halcot Gallery in our #FREE #exhibition, in Hall Place. (pictured with Tony Alcock RAF (retired) MBE, proud nephew of Sir John #Alcock) But also... we have this beauty “flying” in for the day, all the way from Sunderland, especially for our day. The replica of a 1916 Morane Saulnier N which was flown during #WW1, will sit pride of place in the Vintage Village, just inside the East Gate. It will be accompanied by other historical artefacts from the era. We have tried to hold a “loose WW1/1920’s” theme for the event. I know, I know, they are 2 different things... but it’s all for fun and “all that jazz” 🤗 #MoraneSaulnier #localhistory #crayford #bexley #alcockandbrown #alcockandbrown100 Mayor of Bexley London Borough of Bexley Bexley Archives Bexley Historical Society Bexley Libraries Crayford Community Crayford https://cdn.fbsbx.com/v/t59.2708-21/64227754_389036291971716_814612088956649472_n.docx/ridley-trifold.docx?_nc_cat=110&_nc_oc=AQn2N1iORZX7uBh4TZB9_CymS_DsUfC2BE4vrCEyzOmb4M93LMUWM4hrkBFnFPbl2Ps&_nc_ht=cdn.fbsbx.com&oh=7a03bf1a098f51c0971ea29ada3d1b13&oe=5D316FDB&dl=1 ...
