Historic Helicopters Open Day and Flying Display

The event will showcase flying Historic Helicopters aircraft including Westland Whirlwind, Wessex Mk 5, Sea King Mk’s 3, 4, 5 & Mk 48 (Belgian Air Force SAR aircraft); Lynx Mk 7 and Westland Wasp.

Aircraft will conduct flying displays subject to weather and serviceability; including celebrations to mark 70 years of RAF Search and Rescue – and display of Lynx Mk 7. On the ground there will be static aircraft including Westland Sea Kings (Mk’s 3, 4, 5 & 48) Westland Widgeon, Westland Scout, Gazelle and many others. Static displays will afford the opportunity for closer photography and interaction with crews.

The event will have a family focus with events and activities specifically for families and younger aviation enthusiasts. Full catering will be available on the day: including cafés, coffee shop, licenced bar and food stalls. There will also be Historic Helicopters souvenirs, aviation related vendors, historic military vehicles and classic cars.

Why not stay for the Saturday evening ‘Aftershow Party’ and enjoy live music and food and drink.
