This is a 1940s celebration of the commitment and sacrifices of the Norwegian aircrews based at North Weald to defend the skies over London. The nearby Epping Ongar Railway has always had a strong link with the airfield as it was instrumental to the location of the airfield (built only 13 years after the Wright brothers took to the skies), providing the transport for building materials and latterly for the air and ground crews.
The EOR heritage bus and rail network will be linking up Epping Underground station, Epping High Street, Ongar, North Weald and the airfield, and you can travel as the airmen did in 1940s style. For the first time we are pleased to offer a combined discounted ticket that offers travel ALL DAY on the buses, steam trains and diesel trains PLUS entry to the airfield event.
As well as the airfield being packed with planes both old and new, including some flying overhead in the skies, community stalls and classic cars. Both the airfield and railway stations will be getting into the 1940s theme with re-enactors, vehicles, displays and the odd surprise, so plenty for your readers to see, explore and discover during their visit!
Epping Ongar Railway offers the only heritage steam railway connected to the London Underground, and with the heritage buses shuttling and planes flying overhead, its 1940’s day on 9th Sept promises to be set to be a great day out!
