INThe sight of a tank making its way through Carnlough was one of the highlights of the 14th annual Vintage Rally and Heritage Day.

Organised by Carnlough Vintage Society, the event once again brought a grood crowd of spectators to the picturesque village.

The day, as usual, was held as part of the Carnlough Festival, co-ordinated by the Antrim Coast Lions.

The tank - a KFOR Predator, belonging to Alex Robinson from Broughshane, had last seen active service in Kosovo and was commissioned in 2004.

Proving popular too with the big crowd, was the display of Austin cars, lined up in front of the Londonderry Arms Hotel.

There were the usual favourites, such as Armagh man Michael Cowan’s fascinating model farm, plus a return visit of the Royal Glen Miniatures Mobile Animal Farm from Ballygawley and a demonstration of metal work by Aaron Leitch from Islandmagee.
