RAF Cosford Air Show Wish List

Cosford has been getting better as a show in the past few years and the team have done a great job of trying to please everyone. Themes for next year 75 years since VE Day is surely going to be a big theme for next year. It’s also 85 years since the first flight of the Hurricane , Anson and Blenheim...

Re: Arrivals

Lots of poor weather in the mix tomorrow, unfortunately. Some discussions I have heard - ATC at Shawbury have been advised that any planned practice displays (at this moment) at Cosford will be postponed. Obviously, it's a fluid situation and so this can't be taken as fact. Would no practice mean n...

Re: Arrivals

Anyone there today ? I’m about 10 miles from Cosford and the weather is atrocious and looks like it’s here for the day. . Anyone know if anything’s planned to practice this afternoon? Weather and visbility at Shawbury is poor. Suspect any planned practice displays may not go ahead, but that's only ...

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

I do understand how airshows are run but it still doesn’t change the point I’m making. I won’t make the point again on here if it offends you. I’ll get it back on topic. Has anyone shot arrivals and practice displays from anywhere else than the train station ? I know you get good views up there but ...

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

With the deployment of 617 squadron to Cyprus for 6 weeks I guess we won’t be seeing a RAF F35B at Cosford.... Is there not some still flying in the UK ? Or has our full fleet deployed ? Poor showing if there’s an airframe just sat on the tarmac at Marham. Poor show from the home team as such with ...

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

would have preferred to see Rich Goodwins Pitts display and the DR107 does nothing for me so it’s a meh from me to. With the Tutor and the Tucano already there showcasing single prop planes with full Displays. I personally would rather see something else other than the Dr107. Something like sally B,...

With Yeovilton confirming the F-35 for 2 flypasts, surely Cosford should get the same being the RAF’s only
Show ?

Can either of the types use Cosfords runway or both to based elsewhere ? Also would they have a support aircraft that could be added to static in the future ?

£25 for early bird prices is quite a price considering what will be on display. Cosford looks much better value for the Midlands punters.

Re: RAF Cosford Air Show 2019 - Sunday 9th June 2019

Great update ! Nice to have some afterburners confirmed nice and early ! Quick question for the great brains on this site. Has the Lincoln ever been outside for static ?

Flying Bulls bf-105 display is the best helicopter display I’ve watched. To say they throw the thing around is an understatement. Thrown about more than the German one at RIAT recently?

Looking at some photos of the set-up... a lot of the museum pieces are inside marquees. Understandable given their fragility and the unpredictability of the great British weather. At least there won't be bouncy castles and toilets in the background. I just hope there won't be anyone sat next to the...

Re: Arrivals 2018

Given that we're talking about two airfields, it's probably worthwhile if people clarify which airfield they are at when talking about movements/arrivals/general stoof. One imagines that they aren't building the plastic Typhoon at SHY? (I could be very wrong!) Sorry I’m at Cosford. Static on the ai...

Notams have the airfield open from 14.00-18-00 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I’ll be there on Friday and Saturday. Has anyone been to Shawbury before ? Is there much chance of a shot or two of a the fast jets operating from there ?
