A RED Massey Ferguson tractor, worth £3,000, was taken from farm land in Lower Bentley, between 7pm last Friday (September 28) and 5am on Saturday (September 29).
The 1960s 35X model, fitted with a Ransomes rear-mounted hydraulically driven 214 gang mower, was owned by a model flying club to cut grass so its aircraft could take off and land.
The tractor had an early Lambourne type roll cage and cab, a number of dents and marks on it and the registration mark 6725DF painted on it.
The engine number was 1953826 and the chassis number was SNMY310050.
PC Mike Roberts of West Mercia Police said: as it was a collectible vehicle, it was likely attempts would be made to sell it rather than scrap it.
And he added that thieves would have needed a trailer to take it away.
The tractor was uninsured, so the club faces footing the bill to replace it.
Any witnesses to the theft or anyone with any information on it should call 0300 333 3000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
