Caught by a strong gust of wind just at the point of take off this Vickers Vimy replica was blown onto the grass. The pilot did an amazing job although he did end up on the grass at the other side of the runway as he steered away from the crowd. He abandoned the rest of his display and retired, probably for a stiff drink.
