This is to confirm that the 2009 SHOREHAM ROYAL AIRFORCES ASSOCIATION BATTLE OF BRITAIN AIRSHOW will take place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of August 2009.
It will be our ‘20th ANNIVERSARY EVENT’ and it is intended to make it a fitting tribute to those that have organised it over the past twenty years with some displays that will make it different from past years.
It will also be our way of saying a big thank you to those that have supported us over the years by helping or attending the airshows. It is not easy to run an event this size, considering all involved are volunteers and the organisers under Don Bean MBE are well aware of this. “Our aim is to support the Royal Air forces Association and to raise the record funds we have done over the past 19 years is an outstanding achievement that we should all be very proud off,” he added.
“There were some traffic related problems on the Saturday of this year’s event and it is our intention to make sure that this will not happen again in 2009. There is no doubt that this year’s two day show was a great success with Saturday breaking all attendance records making up for the inclement start to the Sunday. The feedback we have had from the aviation media and aircrews is that once again Shoreham was one of the highlights of the air display calendar,” said John Periam.
Not only do we need your support for 2009 but if there are any who have a genuine interest to help us do please contact the Airshow Office on 01273 441545. “The work is not easy but it is fun and aviation can become very addictive as many of us have already found out,” said Don Bean.
Look forward to seeing you in 2009.
