The Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum in Flixton provided the perfect backdrop for a classic car show.

The special gathering yesterday had a distinctly vintage feel with motorists from the East Coast Pirates American Classic Car Club, swing dancing in the hangar and many visitors dressing the part in vintage clothing.

Chairman of the museum Ian Hancock said: 'It's a great event for us because it brings people into the museum and it also gives the motorists a place to display their exhibits.

'There has been a very friendly atmosphere and everyone can find something of interest as they go around.'

Mel Philpot was one of the hundreds of people who brought vehicles to show, with his 1931 Ford Model A pick up truck, having attended the event in previous years with motorbikes.
