The event will again feature a wide array of classic and super cars, motorbikes and aircraft, to please enthusiasts of all ages. 

Visitors will have the opportunity to stroll around the historic Army Air Corps airfield to chat with the pilots attending the event and, in some instances, even sit in the aircraft. 

Weather permitting, a wide range of aircraft will fly in and out of the museum throughout the event, including a rather special ‘Spitmunk’ making its first appearance at the event.

For non-enthusiasts, there will be the opportunity to browse the artisan trader village, with over 40 stalls selling a wide range of arts, crafts, food and drink, or to sit back and enjoy some great live music on the airfield stage.

Activities for families and children will be in abundance, with fantastic inflatables, laser tag, circus skills, replica historic pedal planes, mini tanks, face painting and lots of craft and interactive activities to keep little ones busy throughout the day. 

This year the museum will introduce an Innovation Zone to the event with lots of hands-on activities to challenge and inspire young minds.

The museum is pleased to announce the main sponsor of the event – GKN Aerospace – will be delivering some unique activities within the Innovation Zone alongside companies including Rolls-Royce Ltd and RC Vision.

As the museum works towards the Armed Forces Covenant gold award, a charity village to enable military charities to showcase the work they do will take pride of place within the main airfield.
