Sutch a shame we cant dig up more pictorial memories, it was my first airshow and kick started my love of planes. My Father and I went along to the Birmingham archives to see if we could find anything...

Re: Birmingham Airshow 1973

I recently came across this old(ish) topic . Like others here, I too recall being totally amazed [even in those days] at how they managed to stage this Show in the built-up suburbs of Birmingham - a wonderful experience, indeed.
