    On visiting the festival, you will also come face-to-face with Romans from the age of Vespasian, as well as knights of Middle Ages, Napoleonic riflemen and Tommies from the two world wars. The best living historians are not only among the most informed people on any given period, they also know how to bring the past back to life in an exciting and visually compelling way.

From Romans to the Second World War, and with displays by some of the very best re-enactors and historical interpreters in the UK. With an air show featuring Spitfires, a B-17 and other warbirds, and with Sword School, Have-a-Go Archery, an interactive First World War trench experience, and jousts and battle re-enactments, there is much to see for all the family.

    At Home with Shuttleworth Airshow

    Shuttleworth Collection, Old Warden Aerodrome, Bedfordshire, SG18 9EP

    http://www.shuttleworth.org

    One of the most exciting aspects of Shuttleworth is being able to get up close to the aircraft and vehicles so this year ‘At Home’ is replacing our traditional evening airshows, and this ‘At Home’ will bring a host of agricultural vehicles to Shuttleworth to complement our own growing agricultural display, and the return of our Steam Engine Dorothy will bring to life the newly restored Chaff Cutter.

    This ‘Uncovered’ style event will also see a range of aircraft and vehicles on paddock 1 available to see up close and in detail, with staff and volunteers on hand to talk about what makes them interesting and the work that goes into keeping them working as intended.

    There will be flying throughout the day, weather permitting, in a relaxed programme that has no dedicated ‘display time’, meaning aircraft can fly any time after the gates open until close to dusk. If the weather is kind it means almost certainly that the pilots skilled with the Edwardians will take the chance to get airborne!

    Military and Flying Machines

    Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Essex, RM14 2TF

    http://www.militaryandflyingmachines.org.uk/

    It is with deep regret that the Essex Historic Military Vehicle Association, organisers of the Military & Flying Machines Show, announce that they have been forced to cancel the Air Display element at this year’s event, due to the new requirements that the Civil Aviation Authority have put in place as a consequence of the tragic events at the Shoreham Air Show last year. The show organisers and our partner agencies have considered the new requirements in detail and whilst it is possible to comply with the new Air Display safety regulations, the responsibilities and liability risks placed on the Flight Display Directors and Event organisers personally, combined with the time required to arrange the necessary road closures and approvals has resulted in substantial cost increases, which as a charity, the Essex HMVA cannot absorb, this has left us with no choice but to cancel the Air Display element of the show for 2016.

    This is a huge disappointment, not only for the organisers, but also for the Aircraft and Warbird operators, who have worked so closely with us in recent months to make our 10th Anniversary show the spectacular event we had originally planned.

    We would like to thank all of those involved who have put in considerable effort, working tirelessly with us to try and make our original plans happen, they have supported us right up until recent issues forced the realisation upon us that we were unable to progress this any further. We are continuing to work with interested parties to see if there is any way we can plan attendance for aircraft static displays, however the new CAA regulations make this unclear at this time.

    Despite this setback, the show organisers continue to work tirelessly to make this the best show ever, and are working on a number of ideas that will make the 2016 show a truly memorable event. Please check our website for further updates.

    We look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 Military & Flying Machines 10th Anniversary show, 6-7th August, 2016, at Damyns Hall Aerodrome, Aveley, Upminster, Essex.

Historic motor sports on the track all weekend, and historic cars, buses, bikes, military vehicles, dioramas, re-enactors in the show fields, plus flying displays over head.

    A huge Military display will be parked along the old east west runway with living history displays and re-enactor groups adding to the atmosphere of the event. In the field behind the start/finish straight, there are classic cars and trade stalls will be selling a variety of  period items and clothing from a bygone age.

    Barnstorming flying displays in period aircraft will thrill the crowds and will take off and land from grass runway adjacent to the Military vehicle display.

    Period dress is encouraged for both participants and visitors. Many people entered into the spirit of the event last year, including the children, which all added to the atmosphere and spectacle.
