A celebratory event to mark the Edgley Optica’s 40th Anniversary is held at the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection on Saturday, October 19, 10am to 4pm.

The event is an opportunity for ex-Edgley employees and fans of the company and the Optica aircraft to get together to celebrate the first flight of the type, and to remember the people that made it happen.

There will also be an opportunity to tour the Collection which housed the Optica assembly line.

“We hope to attract as many ex-employees as possible who may be still residing in the Salisbury and Wessex area, an aircraft and company which is key to Salisbury’s rich aviation history,” an organiser said.
