WIN one of four pairs of tickets to RAF Cosford Airshow!
Come and celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force with our Cosford Air Show competition!
On Sunday 10 June, RAF Cosford will once again be opening its gates to 60,000 visitors… and we’ve got four pairs of Air Show tickets to give away.
Gasp as daring displays swoop through the Shropshire skies, with six hours of jaw-dropping manoeuvres and unforgettable aircraft to keep the family enthralled. This year, aircraft will be flying in chronological order to demonstrate the advance in air power, from the Great War team to today’s ace pilots and planes.
Celebrate the RAF’s 100th Birthday Year
But it’s not all about the flying displays… In the RAF Village, you’ll learn everything the RAF has to offer, from the vast variety of jobs available (cyberspace communication specialist anyone?) to extra-curricular activities.
Step back through time in the Vintage Villages, where you can ride a carousel, join the street party, and buy a cuppa in a ’40s-themed tea room. This is also where you’ll find the static line-up of 100 aircraft which tell the tale of the UK’s airborne defence over a century. Marvel at how fragile the Sopworth Tri-Plane looks up close, or clamber into a jet and imagine you’re at the controls.
As the home of RAF Engineering, Cosford welcomes thousands of trainees every year. See some of the training staff go through, from the ‘basics’ of understanding aircraft components to the nitty-gritty of ensuring ejector seats are fitted correctly. This year, the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Hangar showcases more exciting displays and hands-on exhibits than before.
