To mark this year’s centenary of the RAF and Cotswold Airport’s original RAF roots, the organisers have launched a major initiative to get 100 aircraft to fly in over the two-day event, to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force.

Jo Welch, Head of Events at Cotswold Airport said: ‘This initiative is really exciting.  We hope to attract many many different types of aircraft over the two days for everyone to see.  We especially are interesting in vintage and military schemed aircraft, including helicopters, light aircraft and large and small jets.

“We are offering free landing for the duration of the event for these aircraft and free parking.  Pilots and owners are welcome to camp if they wish to stay for the two days and bring any display materials to tell visitors all about their aircraft.’
