RAF Cosford in Shropshire hosts a popular airshow in the Midlands. The display usually consists of a good mixture of RAF, warbirds, display teams, and usually a foreign visitor.
It is also home to the Aerospace museum which is an extension to the main museum at Hendon. The museum includes research & development airframes, missile collections, and captured enemy aircraft such as the Argentine FMA IA 58 Pucara.
The RAF COSFORD AIR SHOW will be held on SUNDAY 14th JUNE 2015.
