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.
On the day tickets are subject to limited availability on the day.
The RAF Cosford Air Show is signed on all major approach roads. From the south, leave M6 at Junction 10a. From the north, leave M6 at Junction 12 and follow the Air Show signs. The show is on the A41, less than a mile from Junction 3 on the M54.
From the thrills of the Fun Fair, the RAF Museum, Static Aircraft displays, Military Exhibitions, Craft Fair and of course Cosford's famous Sunday Market, we are sure you will find something to suit the whole of the family.
