    Cosford Airshow 2017


    RAF Cosford Air Show 2017 will be held on Sunday 11th June and is shaping up to be one of the must-attend events of the year, with the 6-hour flying display packed with exciting aircraft.

    One of the highlights of the flying display will be an appearance of Hurricane R4118, widely regarded as the most historic British aircraft to survive in flying condition from WWII. The aircraft was delivered to 605 (County of Warwick) Squadron in August 1940 and flew 49 sorties, shooting down 5 enemy aircraft. Nowadays, 605 Squadron is a Royal Air Force Reserve Squadron which is based at RAF Cosford.
    Tickets are priced at just £25.00 per adult, with accompanied under 16s entering free, which makes the RAF Cosford Air Show great value for money and a day not to be missed. Don't forget...tickets are only available in advance so pop over to www.cosfordairshow.co.uk to find out further information and to get your ticket now!

    Well last years was anything but... when it started off with a fire services drive by followed up lastly by a pair of meat wagons and the Padre, you just knew they were scratching at straws for stuff to show. It is lucky this year they have a bit more civilian content because the RAF element at the RAF's ONLY Airshow is pitiful....if not embarrasing.
