Abingdon Air & Country Show 2024

Post by Abingdon (Oldtower) »

Our annual Air(show) & Country Show is set to take place once again at Abingdon for Saturday 18th May 2024.
Further details as planning time goes by at www.abingdonairandcountry.co.uk

One thing - we hope for the return of the RAF C17 in the static which was hugely popular being open to the public (requests have gone in so fingers crossed nearer the time).

Taken from the Facebook page, Jersey Jerk Mustang added to flying and static.

Good morning - we are very pleased to announce another top World War Two aircraft joining us in the flying display aswell as on the ground will be this immaculate North American P51 Mustang 'Jersey Jerk'.
This is believed to be its UK display debut with us having been in residence in Australia for a number of years.

This aircraft is painted up as the personal mount of Major Donald Strait who was assigned to the 361st Fighter Squadron / 356th Fighter Group based out of Martlesham Heath, UK.

The Mustang adds to the already announced Hawker Hurricane Mk1 and Rolls Royce Supermarine Spitfire Mk19 in the air displays & static park as a brace of World War Two fighter representation with the possible inclusion in some form of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at a later date to be announced.
