Sywell Aerodrome has marked more than 80 years since the first Aerial Beagle meeting was held at the Northamptonshire airfield.
On November 20, 1929, a local hunt – the Pipewell Foot Beagles – were joined by more than 40 aircraft.
The airmen parachuted toy beagles out of their plane windows for the amusement of the hunt.
And members of the societies who met at that original event repeated it on Thursday – 82 years later.
The Pipewell group, which took along a pack of beagle dogs, met the Moth Club and its aircrafts.
Aerodrome managing director Michael Bletsoe-Brown said it was “a piece of history in the making”.
