Old Buckenham Airshow

At few other events can you see the greatest pilots and aircraft flying at the limit, then take to the skies yourself in a WWII legend. But then, very few shows are like the Airshow. Often described as the perfect family day out, the show wins new fans each year amongst aircraft experts and people who've never been to an airshow before. After a very successful 2014 show we're planning an even bigger and better weekend in 2015. We keep innovating each year; in 2014 we launched the Food Village to universal acclaim. You won't find a yellowing burger van on the site, but you will find an enhanced Beer Festival from Norfolk's newest brewery, Taylor's. In 2015 there will be four beers exclusively brewed for, and only on sale during, the Airshow. In 2014 beers commemorated aviation legend Brendan O'Brien and his stunning trailer- top landing (we're in the process of trying to get it recognised as a world record) as well as star-of-the-show, Staggerwing 'High Maintenance'.

David Freestone

Having undertaken many years of voluntary work with the Air Training Corps and organising and supporting associated events, I found myself more and more involved in supporting the Royal Air Force's charitable work and grappling with CAP403, amongst many regs, in the context of organising flying events. I have also been active in providing PR support to RAF display teams including the Red Arrows, Typhoon, Tucano, Solo Hawk and Tutor display teams as well as working to raise funds for their chosen charities. Where possible, I offer free support to air shows and other events organised by charitable organisations, in the role of Flying Display Director, and am current with existing and emerging regulations. For commercial events I attempt to provide a service at the lowest possible cost but will not, under any circumstances, provide a service for an event which does not fully meet the requirements set out in the relevant regulations. I specialise in small events of up to 6 flying display slots in a day and have been active in this role since 2003. I am happy to provide advice to event organisers including recommendations for flying display items. I am a member of the British Air Display Association, a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and a Fellow Member of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation.
