The Royal Air Force are once again showing a display of force at the RAF Cosford Air Show on Sunday 19th June 2016.  The ever-popular RAF Aerobatic Team, fondly referred to as the Red Arrows, will be headlining the flying display with their world-famous display of graceful formations and thrilling manoeuvres.

Other star performers returning to the show include the Eurofighter Typhoon, RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. These additions to the flying displays are just the first of many aircraft which will form the exhilarating six-hour flying display at the show.

Wing Commander Richard Osselton, Air Show Chairman said ‘We are delighted with the support that the Royal Air Force are giving us as the only RAF air show in 2016 and we will announce more display acts over the coming months.’

On the ground, visitors will be able to explore an interesting variety of static aircraft, including Griffin & Squirrel helicopters. The aircraft which are flown from nearby RAF Shawbury are both used for flying training, which is a key theme for this year’s event.
