Judging by the loud rumbling noise and the house windows starting to rattle I can safely assume that the 2012 RAFA Battle of Britain Airshow is underway at Shoreham by Sea in Sussex.
For those that have not been before its a great day out, perfect for families young and old. With aircraft of all sizes and all ages there is something for everyone. There is plenty to see and do at the airfield including Dad’s Army display.
The airshow is held to support the work of the Royal Air Forces Association which provides welfare and comradeship to all members of the Royal Air Force and Royal Air Force Regiment. Since the shows inception, the event has raised over £1.5million for RAFA.
The afternoon flying display features strong support from the armed forces as well as exciting aerobatic and emotive historic aircraft displays.
The event usually includes a famous “Scramble” scenario featuring historic Spitfires, Hurricanes and Messerchmitts in a thrilling set piece with pyrotechnics and re-enactors. On the ground there will be extensive static displays, arena displays, classic cars and trade stalls.
Join the fun this weekend by travelling to the Shoreham Airport at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.
