Re: Abingdon Air(show) & Country Show 2021

Are you still going with the heli-meet and fly-in Neil, or are you back to a regular airshow? The idea will be a mini helimeet, but staying with a regular airshow as before ( the generalised fly in element as before). Who knows what i will have lined up for you over the coming months but it won't b...

Re: Abingdon air and Country show 2019 - 5th may

We apart from one year have always been the first early May bank holiday. Its up to Shuttleworth if they choose that weekend (who put on multiple events per year). A bit of a silly comment. They've been holding Flying displays on the first Sunday of the month at Old Warden for well over 40 years. T...

Thanks for posting about our show at Abingdon - a long way to go yet naturally but you beat me to it posting up the first few items. All will be static too.

Re: Farnborough International Airshow 2018

The only highlights for me were Spanish Harrier, and a feisty F16 demo,which was the US West coast demo team, something that wasn't mentioned in the build up PR.
A shame a once great show has unfortunately declined.

Re: Abingdon Air & Country Show 6 May 2018

I have to say last years 'recommended group' were not recommended by me to anyone else! Thats why we have split into two gates, one for advance which should see speedier entry / exiting, and cash on the day at Gate A. We have also got the original all adult company back in to collect the cash on the...

Quick Question - for advance ticket holders do they exit via Gate B and does this make for an easier exit from the show.
thanks

Frank - entry and exit is GATE B yes for advance ticketers.
