The Combined Ops Military and Air Show is a unique event with a variety of vintage and modern aircraft displays, on the ground and in the air

The Met Office forecast for tomorrow, Saturday 10th only, (which organisers are monitoring on an hourly basis) may well put most of the aircraft outside their legal limits to fly but, just as they were back in 1940 the pilots and crews are all ready to scramble if it’s at all possible once the all-clear is given!

Luckily the Tanks, Jeeps and hundreds of military vehicles will all be within limits. Please come along dressed for the weather and check for updates.

Here is the planned flying programme for this weekend.

  • Bell 206L  – Pleasure flights both days
  • Boeing Stearman –  Static both days
