Ken Wallis celebration at Old Buckenham

Crowds come to airfield
Old Buckenham Airfield opened itself up today in celebration of the life and achievements of Wing Commander Ken Wallis who died earlier this month aged 97.
Many visitors were arriving by car at the official opening time of 10am and soon after the queues were stretching all the way down the airfield's long entrance road. There were plenty of people gathering around in the Blister Hangar to see Little Nellie, the autogiro that starred in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice.
Outside the hangar the collection of autogiros was growing as more and more flew in to join this unique event.
