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 09th JUNE 2013.
The main focus will be the 75th Anniversary of RAF Cosford and this will be celebrated both in the air and on the ground. Other themes include 75 years since the Spitfire entered RAF Service and 40 years of service from the Jaguar aircraft. There will be a thrilling six-hour flying display.
