A full day's programme had been arranged for today at Old Buckenham Airfield. But lots of rain and a low cloud base meant that the classic cars stayed in their owners' garages and the expected visitors by air did not manage to fly in.
The celebratory gun salute did take place this afternoon (and made a lot of noise). Meanwhile the hangar is decorated and just waiting for all those coming along this evening to enjoy the barn dance. Whatever the weather, things will be swinging this evening and well into the night.
