A cheque for £150,000 was handed over to Ed Jarron Secretary General of the Royal Air Forces Association being the sum raised from this years Shoreham Airshow.

The total raised to date from all the shows has now exceeded One Million Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand pounds.

Plans are now well in advance for the 2008 event which is being held on August 30th and 31st 2008 with some stunning new flying displays.

Don Bean MBE Airshow Organiser said “It was tragic that Brian Bown lost his life whilst displaying at this years show but we know that he would have wanted us to carry on next year and we will do that with a fitting tribute to his memory.” A Donation has also been made to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance where Brian lived and to the Sussex Wing of the Air Cadets.
