Manchester Airport's annual Aviation and Transport Festival took place on the weekend of Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July. Every year it gets over 15,000 visitors in a weekend.
This amazing event cost just £5 per adult for the entire day. Our 3 year old grandson was free! Car parking was free and the Concorde hangar was also free although "trips" on Concorde were £5.00 for 30 minutes .
The event included a WW2 experience including a lovely WW2 style singer, American WW 2 vehicles, a display of old cars, traction engines, a craft fair, children's fairground rides, aircraft cockpits, live music and much more.
It was a fantastic day.This all shows that despite our well-known dreadful weather we can still have a marvellous time in the mud on a soaking wet day in high summer in the North of England.
