The organisers of this year’s 20th Anniversary RAFA Shoreham Airshow are delighted to announce that the Avro Vulcan Bomber XH558 will be displaying at this years airshow on both days.
Don Bean MBE Airshow Organiser said, “Thanks to some very generous support, sponsorship has been provided that will enable us to have the wonderful aircraft gracing the skies above Shoreham both days over the display weekend.”
With eight weeks to go prior to the airshow the aircraft display mine up is looking stunning and full of every type of aircraft to cater for all tastes from modern day fast jets through to some of the top civilian aerobatic teams.
The Guinot wing walking team will be displaying this year for the last time under the Guinot banner and have promised to provide a five ship display on the Sunday. They have supported us from year one and we are delighted they have decided to provide this rare five ship display at Shoreham – a fitting tribute to our 20th Show.
A total of approximately 50 aircraft will be displaying both days and the flying is set to last over five hours. The Spitfire and Hurricane scramble will be back as well as the World War 1 team – two contrasting wars and two contrasting displays.
“There are still some surprises to be announced and advance ticket sales are going well thanks to the fantastic support of our sponsors who have been putting a lot of effort into promoting the airshow on our behalf,” said John Periam Airshow Press Officer. “It is important that on show days you arrive early and listen to the local radio networks regarding traffic as the planned appearance of the Avro Vulcan is bound to attract a lot of interest,” he added.
