The Vampire Preservation Group will be holding their inaugural Open Day on Saturday 8th March 2008 from 3:00pm onwards.
We will be hosting the event from ‘The Squadron’ at North Weald. Refreshments will be available, including a licensed bar. Admission is free (although any donations would be greatly appreciated!) and the planned timetable for the day’s events is as follows:

3:15pm - Vampire WZ507 departs for short local flight
3:30pm - Vampire lands back at North Weald
3:45pm - Vampire made available for guided tours with the pilots
4:45pm - Presentation about the history of the Vampire, WZ507 and the work of the VPG, with photographs and video clips
6:00pm - Prize Draw – the top prize is a ride in the Vampire when we taxi back to the hangar!
6:30pm - Night start up. A rare opportunity to see the start up flames at night! We will then taxi past 'The Squadron', allowing spectators to hear the distinct sound of the Vampire's 'Goblin' engine
7:00pm - Meet the Group. Your chance to meet members of the VPG and ask any questions – we will be available in the bar until around 10pm.

Please note – all outdoor activities will be subject to weather.
