The Brass Monkey Rally hopes for clear skies

NORTH Coates Flying Club is holding its annual winter event this Saturday and Sunday.

The Brass Monkey Rally is one of the few aviation winter events and is usually one of the club’s busiest weekends of the year.

Chairman Mike Speakman said: “Clear blue skies and frosty weather provide the best conditions, snow and rain are not wanted. If the weather is kind we can expect aircraft from all over the country to attend to take advantage of this unique event.”

It starts at about 10am each day and finishes at about 4pm. Admission is free.

The airfield is near the village of North Cotes.
