It was the most diverse collection of aircraft Old Buckenham had ever seen.
Many arrived by air, one after another after another to pay their respects to the man who made his name through flight. Wing Commander Ken Wallis.
They expected a turnout of around two hundred or so but more than 2,000 people came - family, friends, fans, and fellow aviators.
It was in Little Nellie his beloved creation that Ken Wallis perhaps made his most memorable flight, as Sean Connery's stunt double in the 1967 Bond film You Only Live Twice.
As one of his fellow airmen put it Ken Wallis will never be forgotten but is already being missed.
