RAF Cosford Airshow 2018

RAF Cosford History
RAF Cosford opened in 1938 as a joint aircraft maintenance, storage and technical training unit and has remained mainly a training unit to this day. The Princess Mary's Royal Air Force Nursing Service hospital was established at RAF Cosford from 1977 until 1980. The extensive sports facilities at Cosford, located around a banked indoor running track, became well known nationally through televised annual indoor championships that featured top athletes from all over the world.

Today Cosford is home to No. 1 School of Technical Training, No. 1 Radio School RAF, the Defence School of Photography and the RAF School of Physical Training. Flying units include the University of Birmingham Air Squadron, No 8 Air Experience Flight and No 633 Volunteer Gliding Squadron. The Wales and West regional headquarters and West Mercian Wing headquarters of the Air Training Corps are situated there, along with No 2497 (Cosford) Squadron of the ATC. There are many Sepecat Jaguar aircraft at RAF Cosford which are used for ground instructional use.

RAF Cosford is also home to the RAF Cosford Museum which is a branch of the Royal Air Force Museum. Amongst the large collection of military aircraft is a unique collection of research and development aircraft, including one of two existing examples of the TSR2. The collection also includes early missiles and rocketry. In February 2007, the Princess Royal opened the new National Cold War Exhibition at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford which includes Britain's three V-bombers: Vulcan, Victor and Valiant and many other aircraft from the cold war period.

The RAF Cosford Air Show 2018 featured a unique mix of aircraft, spanning the 100-year history of the Royal Air Force, which was showcased in the flying display and in the special RAF100 Static Exhibition. This was a never before seen collection of aircraft that gave a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the revolution of air power over the last 100 years. Click here to see a Cosford 2018 Review.

RAF Cosford Airshow 2020
Swiss F/A-18C Hornet - RAF Cosford Airshow 2019

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 static aircraft display have included some of the rare museum aircraft which are placed outside.

14 June - RAF Cosford Airshow 2020 POSTPONED NOW CANCELLED


RAF Cosford Airshow 2020:

This year, the RAF Cosford Air Show will commemorate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day and host "Fighter Meet 2020".

The exciting theme of Fighter Meet 2020 will demonstrate the evolution of air defence aircraft over the last century. This will include commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain - bringing to life the legendary story with emotive flying displays and interactive ground exhibitions - as well as looking to the future, showcasing the very best of today's Air Supremacy.

The VE Day theme will focus on displaying historic aircraft from World War II, both in the air and across the iconic Vintage Village on the showground, combining re-enactment groups with a VE Day street party, a Vintage Fayre, classic vehicles & period entertainment.


RAF Cosford Airshow 2020 CANCELLED

RAF Cosford Air Show 2020 which had initially been postponed has now been cancelled.

Notice of cancellation of the 2020 RAF Cosford Air Show

Following the earlier announcement to postpone the 2020 RAF Cosford Air Show until September, we have now taken the difficult decision to cancel it for this year.

The decision to cancel has not been taken lightly. The Royal Air Force relies on support from international air forces and assistance from local civilian services, our commercial sponsors and volunteers to stage the Cosford Air Show. We are also indebted to the general public, who attend in their tens of thousands every year.

It is now clear, however, that the necessary precautions implemented recently by the UK and international Governments to combat COVID-19 will prevent us from staging the Cosford Air Show in September. Although we are very disappointed for all those who wished to attend, we believe that the health and well-being of the public and serving personnel must come first. This will always be our top priority.

We look forward instead to welcoming members of the public and our partners to the Cosford Air Show in 2021, where we will once again showcase the very best of aerospace and aviation. In the meantime, we offer our very best wishes to all those we work with to deliver the Air Show and look forward to seeing you all again next year.
