With Christmas fast approaching, tickets to the RAF Cosford Air Show are now on sale and they make great presents for all your loved ones. With accompanied under-16s entering for free and early bird tickets costing only £22.00, the Air Show is a great value for money day-out for the entire family.

As well as an action packed six-hour flying display there are also a huge variety of things to do and see on the ground at the RAF Cosford Air Show to excite all ages. With six hangars jammed with interactive exhibitions, the 1960s Vintage Village, plenty of military ground displays, vintage vehicles, funfair and over 1km of trade stalls – you might struggle to see it all in one day!

Another reason to buy your tickets soon is that today the Air Show Organisers announced another aircraft which will wow the crowds on Sunday 11th June 2017; dare-devil pilot Rich Goodwin will be flying his unique Muscle Biplane at the Air Show. Rich’s aircraft is based on the world-famous Pitts Special but a special modification programme has given this aircraft enhanced capabilities which means that Rich’s Muscle Biplane can hover like a Harrier, fly the amazing Tower of Power and master high-alpha knife-edge flypasts!

The Muscle Biplane wears a spectacular colour scheme based on the Union Jack; fitting for a man who served in the Royal Air Force as a Tornado GR1 ground attack pilot and flew in combat. Rich said; “As an ex-RAF pilot I’m honoured to be invited back to display the Muscle Biplane and demonstrate my passion for aviation in front of a capacity crowd. I continue to develop the aircraft and at RAF Cosford I will be flying a new enhanced elevator and wing. I also look forward to updating the crowds on the development of the new Anana Jet Pitts which I hope will be ready to display in 2018.”

Those who purchase their Air Show tickets soon will be able to take advantage of the Early-Bird ticket offer, with adult tickets priced at only £22.00. Accompanied under-16s enter the show for free, making the RAF Cosford Air Show a great value for money day-out!
