The six-hour flying display will include an exciting mix of military and civilian aircraft from the UK and overseas, performing spectacular aerial displays. Highlights of the flying display show already confirmed include; the world’s only airworthy Westland Whirlwind helicopter, mock airfield attack from a pair of BAC Strikemasters and the rare appearance of the Swiss Air Force PC-7 display team.
This year the RAF Cosford Air Show has an operational theme of ‘Battlefield Support’ which will showcase the role of airpower, past and present, in supporting military personnel on the ground during times of conflict. As part of this theme the flying display will feature an exciting set piece featuring Skyraider, Bird Dog, Huey and Loach accompanied by spectacular pyrotechnics.
Another theme being represented at this year’s show is ‘Space’. With a hangar dedicated to the subject and displaying the advancements in space technology not only in the United Kingdom but throughout the world.
