After the noise of the jets at Volkel it was time for a bit of relaxation at Lelystad where the Aviodorme hosted an event to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the MacRobertson air race. The museum advertised in various international magazines, including the Aeroplane and some foreign aircraft did show up, mostly British. The museum had cleaned out its storage as well, and we got to see a few different items on display, like this Avro/Cierva C-30A Autogiro:
Two aircraf models that participated in the MacRobertson came over from England: This Miles Hawk:

Also from the UK, this DH Gypsy Moth:
