UK Airshows 2007



In the UK, as the evenings start to get lighter and the weather improves, the mind starts to wander towards thoughts of long summer days and blue skies. And that means Airshow Season is approaching. Highlights of 2007 include the reappearance of the BBMFs Lancaster in its new Phantom Of The Ruhr livery and the welcome return to the skies of a Vulcan bomber. Hopefully P-38 Glacier Girl will be displaying in the UK this year also. Heres a list of dates for scheduled airshows in the UK this year. Start planning those picnics!

me thinks an Aeroscale day out should be arranged - any takers for a meet at one of the shows? Duxford on the 7th July sound good to anyone? Andy

What a splendid initiative to put this on-line. I remember my first visit to Fairford many years ago. It had been a month in Belgium of very high temperatures and yes, clear blue sky. When crossing the channel it started to rain. It stopped raining 5 days later, while we were crossing the channel again, going back to Belgium. :-) During those 5 days, we have been sleeping (with 5 people) in our car, because the camping area had been turned into a swamp. At the airshow, the Red arrows did not perform, just did a few low level flights, the bookstores in the many tents were closed becasue books could not stand the water,... It looked more like a swimming pool conference than an airshow all togehter Still, we had a great time
