Woodvale Rally 2010!
Photographs and report by Patrick Trollope

RAF Woodvale Rally was a massive hit this year and it proved to be the best so far. It was as popular, if not more popular, than it has ever been. The event had many attractions from classic motor bikes to classic cars at one end of the airfield. There were breathtaking stunts in a new attraction, the Wall of Death; not forgetting, mind you, the other motorcycle stunt display outside. Both of these kept crowds coming back for more. In between the control tower and the bikes was the Fun Fair, and nesting along the side where lots of side stalls… Then you found your self moving on to the model boats and model railway tents, archery, band stands, beer and food tents, craft tents and a car boot sales!  If that was not enough, on top of all that, the show had a real helicopter!  It was used in Vietnam y the US Air Force and with the re-release of the A-Team this year, the Bell Huey was a fantastic site to see; as was the operational Police helicopter!  Adding its own fascination was a fantastic display of pyrotechnics, thanks to MDL Fireworks, who helped recreate a version of the Dam Busters, on the model aircraft display area. But no show at and airfield would be complete with it it and true to form the model aircraft where flying high.  That was not the only flying display as tucked in the corner of the airfield, next to the car park, were the kite flyers. For two of the show’s guests, things just were slightly challenging, as Stan Laurel and Ollie Hardy lookalikes performed their antics. Well done to both of you for keeping all of us highly entertained and adding to what was a fantastic atmosphere. Keep a look out for the pair, as they are from Southport… No idea if you did take off Ollie, but do let us know if you did manage to take off.

Ricky Whittle Cleared In Paparazzi Case
Photographs by Ian Fairbrother

 

THE Strictly Come Dancing star and ex-Hollyoaks actor, Ricky Whittle was taken to Liverpool Crown Court after being accused of deliberately driving his American Dodge pick-up truck at freelance photographer Stephen Farrell. The incident happened in the early hours of 27 November 2010, and lead to the clam that claimed the former model acted out of "irritation" at the snapper trying to get pictures of him with former girlfriend, Hollyoaks actress Carley Stenson. After being cleared Ricky told the media outside that:- "It's been nine months of hell. I'm so glad it's over. I want to thank the people of Liverpool and the Mersey because they really have supported me on the way in and the way out from the courts. It's been really touching. I have had so much support and messages and I just really want to thank them." When asked about his relationship with the media and photographers, Ricky said:- "I have never had a problem with the press before and I won't in the future."
