Abingdon Air & Country Show 6 May 2018

Postby Oldtower on Sat 30 Sep 2017, 5:49 am

Good morning - well planning has been ongoing earlier than normal since July 2017. The new layout together with the issues from 2017 have all been ironed out and sorted for 2018.
One of the themes naturally will be our own RAF 100th anniversary celebration so hoping to achieve an allround small Air & Ground attractions to reflect that.

However, I can confirm our first two demonstrations are: Richard Goodwin in his Muscle Pitts, and the locally based Hawkwalk Falconry.

Our website (http://www.abingdonairandcountry.co.uk) has been totally revised / revamped very kindly by Chris Globe of threshold.aero and will be available for viewing during 1st October onwards.

To help us, we are urging potential public to buy tickets online too to save yourself some money once they are online.

We look forward to seeing you all again on 6th May 2018.

I will post another update on or around 1st December, however to let those who are interested, that our online tickets (Ticketline) will be online from our website from 1st December. Please also note the advance ticket holders have a separate gate for entry / exit this time and the show is like in 2017 - on the eastern side (Hangar side) as this now is the only way to stage the show safely.

A steady flow of attractions are booking in, to add to the above listing, including for the aircraft enthusiasts a Portugese AF coloured Chipmunk, and the return of one of Martin Bakers Meteors for static display (unsure which one so will be a surprise to us when it pitches up all being well)..
