All eyes on Cosford

RAF Museum Cosford has a busy couple of months ahead, with Open Cockpits events leading the way for the Museum’s flagship event, the annual Air Show in June.

The Open Cockpits event takes place on Saturday 19 May at 1 to 4pm and 6 to 9pm, with tickets priced at £10/13.50, and offers visitors the chance to get a closer look inside 100 cockpits and vehicles. The event allows visitors to get a feel for what it was like to fly or drive these much-loved aircraft, including the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15bis, de Havilland Chipmunk, and Hawker Siddeley Dominie T.Mk.1 – visit for details, including dates for events later in the year.

Then, on Sunday 10 June, WWII fighter aircraft including Spitfires and Hurricanes are the latest aircraft added to an amazing list of attractions for this year’s Air Show. Visitors will witness incredible aerial displays from an assortment of historic aircraft to celebrate 100 years of the RAF. Organisers have announced that a rare Mark 1a version of the Supermarine Spitfire will be performing in the flying display – a first for the RAF Cosford Air Show.

As well as the flying displays, an assortment of vintage aircraft will be flying in to bolster the impressive static exhibition, including a genuine Battle of Britain veteran Hawker Hurricane. Tickets for the Air Show must be bought ahead of time – and children go FREE. Visit for details.
