Kemble Air Day 2008 News Release

Kemble Air Day 2008 News Release

With just over a month to go before this years Kemble Air Day there are some exciting new developments we wanted to bring you.

Flying Display

The flying display for Kemble Air Day just keeps growing with latest additions being a P51 Mustang, Fairy Swordfish and a Hawker Sea Hawk. We also hope that the incredible delta winged Avro Vulcan will also be with us. It is still completing its test-flying programme after a mammoth restoration effort, and if this is completed on time then Kemble Air Day could be one of its first outings as a civilian aircraft.

Static Display

We are very excited to have representation, in their 90th anniversary year, from all of the Royal Air Force Tanker / Transport fleet. This will include examples of Tristar, C130 Hercules, the massive new C17 Globemaster and the Vickers VC10. First designed and built around 50 years ago the VC10 is currently the fastest passenger jet in the skies, spanning the atlantic in six hours, almost an hour quicker than 747's and 777's.

But as well as all the Plane action the Air Day has so much more to offer.

Vintage Cars

Over 100 vintage vehicles will be at Kemble Air Day. Classic cars from the 1930's right up to more recent models will be present for you to browse. The owners of these cars will be only to pleased to talk to you about the type of cars Dads used to drive in years gone by.

Military Vehicles

A collection of ex-military vehicles will be on display adding to the atmosphere of the day. Most of these machines date back to World War Two with both British and American vehicles on show.

Custom Bikes

Ogri Motorcycle Club will be providing a selection of custom bikes of many types including some evocative Harley Davidson's with some incredible artwork and polished chrome.

Model Aeroplanes

Around one hundred model aeroplanes will be on show at Kemble Air Day. Once again Cirencester & District Model Aircraft Club will be providing the exhibits with a superb collection of flyable models. During the lunch break a few of the larger models will take to the air from the runway.
