Cosford to reprise royal flypasts
The Diamond Jubilee weekend gave everyone a glimpse of some of the treats in store at the Cosford Air Show.
On Sunday June 17 at Cosford, both the Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will be giving a full display, following their flypasts along the Mall to celebrate Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee.
Sadly the flypast for the River Pageant on Saturday had to be cancelled because of the bad weather. However, the planned stars of that flying display – the Swordfish of the Royal Naval Historic Flight and Royal Navy helicopters - are both in the programme for Cosford, as well as nearly six hours packed with performances from aircraft old and new.
Among many other current highlights are the famous Blades, the RAF Typhoon, role demonstrations from a pair of Tornados, the RAF Sea King and the Army Air Corps Apache, while Vampire, Meteor, P-51 Mustang and the Great War team aircraft lead the classic line-up.
