FLYING heroes past and present came together when a family fun day for East Anglian Air Ambulance was held at Rougham Airfield.

The day was based around the airfield’s Control Tower Museum and the air ambulance helicopter Anglia One was based there for the day. That meant visitors could meet the modern helicopter and crew then learn about the American bombers and crews who once flew from there.

The event, on the first day of Air Ambulance Week, featured stalls and bouncy castles plus the General Lee custom car from Dukes of Hazard, the Road Runner Riders’ custom bikes and Mini Rovers’ child-sized Land Rovers.

Jazz band Eine Kliene Sax Music played all day, in spite of the pouring rain, and Bury St Edmunds accountants Baker Tilly, which has adopted EAAA as its charity of the year, held a balloon race.

EAAA will also have a stall at this weekend’s Copdock Bike Show at Trinity Park.
