All aboard the 747 – destination Wings & Wheels!

Dunsfold Boeing 747

This summer reserve your space on the UK’s most famous Boeing 747 at Wings & Wheels 2013 as the Show throws open the jumbo’s doors for a very special tour. Book your place online, bring your boarding pass to the Show and enjoy a behind the scenes look and guided tour from our team of 747 aficionados.

Located in the Wheels Zone by the plane park, the 747 has made its name as the film set of major Hollywood Blockbusters including the recently released Brad Pitt movie World War Z and forthcoming Formula One themed film Rush with Chris Hemsworth. Visitors will be able to tour the set, learn more about its flying history, sit in the same seat as the meerkats, view the aircraft cock-pit and get up close to the 4 huge engines which were installed for the filming of Casino Royale.

Nancy Edwards, Wings & Wheels Event Manager comments; “Opening the 747 for the first time last year was a huge hit but we knew we could improve on it. This year we’re taking the experience to the next level and our hosted tours will provide even more information and stories on the illustrious flying and filming career of our resident 747. We want visitors to fully interact from the boarding process right through to disembarking and to help with the queues we’ve introduced a new online reservation system and on the day booking process so visitors can just turn up and tour!”

Wings & Wheels Volunteer Flight attendants will be on call throughout the day to ensure visitors fully enjoy their experience. Flights can be pre-booked online by visiting our shop at or by visiting the check-in desk at the 747 over the Show weekend. Spaces are limited and a suggested donation of £4 per adult and £2 per child (aged 2 to 15 years) is requested on the day. Book now to avoid disappointment.
