A DISPLAY from the legendary Red Arrows and a chance to see a the war-winning power of the Spitfire and Hurricane are all part of the highlights at the Sywell Jubliee Airshow on Sunday.

The flying display will be a mixture of older and more modern aircraft contrasting the fragility of WW1 biplanes with the war-winning power of the Spitfire and Hurricane, the RAF’s frontline fighter force during the Battle of Britain.

The bomber airmen are not forgotten with an appearance from the ever popular Lancaster of the BBMF and the modern day RAF will be represented by the world’s premier formation display team, the incredible Red Arrows. In addition to the flying display there will be aircraft on static display (including a Hawker Hunter) along with military and vintage vehicles (more than 50 classic cars and more than 30 military vehicles).

There will also be more than 25 stands. To see Sywell from the air, trial flights will be on offer in the morning from Brooklands Flying Club and Sloane Helicopters, and Air Atlantique’s Classic Flight will be offering de Havilland Rapide pleasure flights.

Gates open at 10am and the show continues until 6pm. On the day adult tickets cost £20, child tickets £5. For pre-booking offers visit the website. The ticket also includes entry to the Sywell Aviation Museum, with exhibits on the history of Sywell and much more. Visit www.
