AIRSHOW GUIDE

UK airshows
T
he big news on the UK scene is that Scampton, the famous RAF station in Lincolnshire, will be staging a new event under the auspices
of RAF Charitable Trust Enterprises, organisers of the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) on September 9 and 10. Scampton is
described separately; as for RIAT itself, the main historic theme for 2017 is the 70th anniversary of the USAF, and to that end July’s
spectacular at RAF Fairford will see the sole British appearance of the year by the USAF’s Air Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds,
with its F-16C Fighting Falcons.
The RAF Cosford Air Show – featured below – continues its recent run of imaginative participation lists, while the Royal Navy as usual
stages its Air Days at both Yeovilton and Culdrose. At both it is hoped that Hawker Sea Fury T.20 will be back on display following
completion of repairs to the damage sustained in its 2014 incident at Culdrose (see last issue). The extent of UK military flying participation
across the whole of the 2017 calendar was not known at press time, though it had been confirmed that the RAF’s Grob Tutor elementary
trainer solo display was returning to join the Red Arrows, Falcons, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Typhoon, and that the Army Air
Corps would be providing a solo Apache. Other RN and Joint Helicopter Command rotary-wing items remained subject to confirmation.
Some of the highlights of the last few seasons have been brought to us by the Shuttleworth Collection, whose shows have hit a rich seam
of form. The return to Old Warden of the Navy Day, staged with the support of the Fly Navy Heritage Trust and its Navy Wings ‘brand’, is
bound to stir much interest. So long as it’s serviceable, the de Havilland Sea Vixen is due to reprise its starring role, alongside a range of
based and visiting aircraft. Shuttleworth’s own Sopwith Triplane is set to be a 2017 returnee, and the restoration to flight of Spitfire LF.Vc
AR501 nears.
IWM Duxford is taking the centenary of the famous Cambridgeshire airfield as its 2017 theme. This will be reflected at two shows, the
Duxford Air Festival in May and September’s Battle of Britain Air Show. Items at the former include the first ever British display by a
Noorduyn Norseman, courtesy of the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation, North Wales Military Aviation Services’ new Strikemaster pair, and
the Sea Vixen. The September show is scheduled to include a massed formation of Spitfires. In between comes July’s two-day Flying
Legends, the Fighter Collection’s annual warbird spectacular.
A new date for the Abingdon Air and Country Show takes this popular annual charity event away from the very start of the season, which
might mean it is less plagued by the aircraft cancellations that have often affected it. This year, organiser Neil Porter has secured a coup in
the form of the first British mainland appearance of Remko Sijben’s CAC Boomerang. Also of note is the fact that Biggin Hill stages a two-
day airshow for the first time since 2010, its Festival of Flight moving to August and celebrating 100 years of the airfield.
Unfortunately, just as this guide was being compiled, it was announced that a planned new seafront event for 2017 has been called off.
The inaugural Great Yarmouth Air Show, scheduled as a four-day affair from June 15-18, was cancelled in late January due to cost increases
associated with, the organisers said, “counter-terrorism measures and medical cover”.

AIRSHOW GUIDE

US and Canadian
airshows
T
he 70th anniversary of the US Air Force is an obvious focus for many of the military events on the North American scene, and it
would seem probable that Aviation Nation at Nellis AFB in November will be the main celebratory occasion. Earlier in the season, a
short North American tour by the French Air Force aerobatic team, the Patrouille de France, will add international flavour – the ‘PAF’
is appearing at the Melbourne Air and Space Show, Sun ’n Fun and the Maxwell AFB Open House, with other dates still to be confirmed.
The latter may include Wings Over Gatineau in Québec, listed here as taking place on June 30 – according to the most recent official
information from Vintage Wings of Canada – but which may be moved forward to April 30 to accommodate the Patrouille.
Another highlight of Sun ’n Fun will be what is billed as this decade’s biggest gathering of North American P-51 Mustangs, also marking
30 years of Mustang operations for training outfit Stallion 51 (see News). A massed display is planned as part of the flying programme on
Thursday, April 6. At EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, meanwhile, a number of anniversaries will be celebrated, including 80 years of the Piper
Cub, the Lockheed Vega’s 90th, and 90 years since Charles Lindbergh’s pioneering transatlantic flight – the latter will bring together as
many Ryan aircraft as possible.
Many April events will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the ‘Doolittle Raid’ against Tokyo, with several B-25 Mitchells flying in to
Grimes Airfield in Pennsylvania before leaving for the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, Ohio, where they will go on static display
and possibly perform a fly-over. In October, look out for the Tuskegee Airmen salute at the Commemorative Air Force’s Atlanta Warbird
Weekend.

AIRSHOW GUIDE

European airshows
A
very full programme of events is lined up for mainland Europe in 2017, even though there aren’t many really big military shows. For
the historic aircraft enthusiast, the much-loved Meeting Aérien at La Ferté Alais, France, is the obvious highlight; what a shame it
clashes with another historic-oriented occasion, the Aviation Fair at Pardubice in the Czech Republic.
Norwegian enthusiasts are well catered for by the traditional display at Kjeller, as well as the less regular shows at Sola and Andøya.
The latter base in the Arctic Circle, home of the Royal Norwegian Air Force’s P-3 Orion maritime patrol fleet, marks the station’s 60th
anniversary and 333 Squadron’s 75th. Will we see Friends of the Starfighter’s newly restored and airworthy CF-104D flying at any of
these events, one wonders? Elsewhere among the Nordic nations, the Helsinki seafront show is a special one-off, organised by the Finnish
Aviation Museum as part of celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of Finland becoming an independent state, and including “a unique
cavalcade of flying aircraft from the past and the present.”
The Paris Air Show takes its usual June slot, while MAKS in Moscow moves from August to July. In Switzerland, the Breitling Sion Airshow
makes a welcome return for the first time since 2011, when it proved to be a sumptuous occasion. Unfortunately, preparations for the Malta
International Airshow had been suspended at the time of writing, as the organisers were waiting for compensation from the country’s
tourism ministry for moving the 2016 event to a seafront site. Check the show’s website for updates.

to attract certain international aerobatic teams. Elsewhere, thevintageaviator.co.nz/airshows/flying-weekends
trade shows dominate the schedule, though the listing must be
considered incomplete – for example, no confirmed listing of
Japanese military airshows had been received by press time. MAY
