‘Chocs away’ for fighter


The Swiss Hornet Display Team will be among the attractions at this year’s RAF Cosford Air Show, which is set to take place on Sunday 9 June, showcasing their breathtaking fast jet display of the legendary McDonnell Douglas F/A 18C Hornet.

The Hornet was designed as a naval fighter with reinforced undercarriage, folding wings and tail-hook; however, it’s used by many land-based air arms across the globe including the Swiss Air Force.

Air Show director Clive Elliott says, “We’re excited and honoured to be welcoming the Swiss Air Force once again to the RAF Cosford Air Show this summer.

“The Swiss Hornet Display Team won the award for best flying display on their previous visit to our Air Show in 2015. They’re regarded as one of the best fast jet displays in Europe and I’m sure their display will be a highlight of the day for all of our visitors.”

Early bird tickets for the Air Show are currently available at the discounted price £25, with under 16s going free. Visit cosfordairshow.co.uk for details.
