We've been many times due to my husband being ex RAF, fantastic displays, plenty to see and do, stalls galore and lots to learn for the kids, foods pricey at these events, but that's the norm, nothing a picnic wouldn't solve.

There is absolutely nothing to dislike and it will be sadly missed this year 2015. Sadly not sure I will see the Vulcan flying again.

This airshow is a must for all aviation and non-aviation enthusiasts alike. The show is an absolutely fantastic event and I can't express how much I enjoy it. Each year the show is planned to military precision (pardon the pun) and it really pays off!...More
