Kemble Airport will be open again over the weekend of the 13th & 14th September for its annual Open Day to commemorate Battle of Britain Day. Kemble Open Day will try to recreate the atmosphere of the old RAF “At Home” Days that were common on most service stations up until the 1970’s.
There will be a small afternoon flying display of vintage aeroplanes on each day starting at 2.00pm with the highlight being a display on the Sunday from the Spitfire and Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Pleasure flying will be available and Air Atlantique from Coventry will bring along a couple of vintage piston engined aircraft from their collection of 1950’s transport aircraft.
You will get the chance to visit all the flying organisations based at Kemble, including The Flying Club, Cotswold Helicopters, Fly2Help, Ultimate High, the Britannia Preservation Society, Kemble Flying Club and of course Delta Jets, and their outstanding collection of privately owned vintage jets. Refreshments will be available and the popular AV8 restaurant will be open. The RAF Benevolent Fund and Fly2Help, our two favourite charities, will also be involved.
A welcome addition to this years Open Day will be the attraction of aircraft that usually attend the Great Vintage Flying Weekend. Kemble Airport has secured this events future and teamed up with them to invite their pilots to visit Kemble over the open day weekend. If all goes according to plan with the weather we should see a wonderful collection of vintage piston engine aircraft join us and to this end we have now included entry on Saturday 13th.
Advance tickets at £8 per person – on sale soon at local tourist information offices in Cirencester & Tetbury.
