9th June 2019, RAF Cosford, Shropshire
Last updated: March 22, 2019 at 15:22 pm

The Cosford Air Show is the only RAF’s annual airshow in 2019. 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.

The 2019 show will mark the 70th Anniversary of NATO and Women in Defence.
