10th June 2018, RAF Cosford, Shropshire

Last updated: January 19, 2018 at 14:17 pm

The Cosford Air Show is the only RAF’s annual airshow in 2018. Cosford airfield is actually fairly small and has retained the character of an old RAF base. Today it’s home to the Defence College of Aeronautical Engineering as well as a branch of the RAF Museum. As such the site is full of former RAF equipment for trading the ground trades of the armed forces as well as the collection from the RAF Museum.

2018 Theme – RAF 100

The RAF Cosford Air Show 2018 will feature a unique mix of aircraft, spanning the 100-year history of the Royal Air Force, which will be showcased in the flying display and in Cosford’s special RAF100 static exhibition. This is a never before seen collection of aircraft that gives you a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the revolution of air power over the last 100 years.
