RAF Cosford holds a popular airshow every year in June, which is held traditionally on the second Sunday of the month. The show usually has attendance figures of over 50,000.
RAF Cosford is the only Royal Air Force airshow now that RAF Leuchars has become an Army base, and RAF Waddington has cancelled their airshow.
As this airshow venue has a short runway of 3,891 ft then many of the aircraft have to use the runways at nearby RAF Shawbury.
In recent years the airshow have included a couple of the resident Sepecat Jaguars performing a taxi-run and a model aircraft display before the actual air display takes place. The static aircraft display usually includes some of the rare museum aircraft which are placed outside.
