Over the last few year’s we’ve created movie history, repeatedly broken our own records and are proud to have created “The Ultimate Family Day Out”. We must be doing something right; we’re delighted to have won the coveted title of “Family Event of the Year” at the EDP Hoseasons Tourism Awards in 2016.
Once again we’re attempting to improve on past glories such as the truly unique moment when Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore) was reunited with her ‘Goldfinger’ helicopter after fifty years, a unique piece of history of which all other Airshows are jealous. Honor is not the only Hollywood star to have visited the Airshow; every year the most famous Spitfire of all, MH434, steals the show. For 2018 we are delighted to start as we mean to go on; the first aircraft to be booked was the extraordinary ‘Sally B’ star of Memphis Belle and the only flying B-17 in Europe. Sally is coming back for a record third consecutive Airshow. The tale of just how this 25 tonne leviathan is still flying is as remarkable as the aircraft herself. Fittingly she is named for the remarkable lady who keeps her flying; Elly Sallingboe.
