RAF Waddington International Airshow 2009 - PREVIEW
 4th - 5th July 2009




The RAF Waddington International Airshow is the largest of the RAF's three annual airshows and the only two day event. Waddington has a history of attracting some very rare aircraft from a number of foreign air arms in recent years that have included Israeli F-15i Ra'ams, A-4SU's from the Singapore Air Force as well as a number of aircraft from Eastern Europe. Waddington itself is home to all of the RAF's recconnaisance assets which include the E-3D Sentry and Nimrod R1 aircraft seldom seen at other shows. Waddington is also home to the new Sentinel R1 and Shadow R1 which are currently equipping No 5 (AC) Squadron.
