Wheels and Wings Show takes over North Berwick's National Museum of Flight
Displays of wings and wheels for those who like to keep their feet on the ground
Adrenaline junkies can get their kicks in a number of ways. Sure you can hang glide or go white water rafting but, for those of a safer disposition, there’s the Wheels and Wings Show. Taking place at the National Museum of Flight in North Berwick, you can enjoy planes, bikes and automobiles from the comfort of the ground.
As well as the 200-plus cars on display, there’s also a Wheels Zone, where audiences can enjoy motoring demonstrations, including the likes of Ferraris, Jaguars, Aston Martins and Formula One cars. If fewer wheels are more your thing, you can test your mountain bike skills, check out the motorbikes on display and further explore the weird and wonderful world of two wheelers. As far as wings go, the usual air shows have been cancelled out of respect for recent events, but there are plenty of static exhibitions of all kinds of flying machines, from the RAF and the British Army among others, as well as engineers and transport experts on hand to explain the how, why and where behind getting up in the air.
There are plenty of gentler pursuits, indeed there are 32 acres of family-friendly attractions, including birds of prey shows, military re-enactments, aviation and motoring simulators, a fairground, interactive car shows and a retail village of more than 80 stalls selling all your winged and wheeled needs.
