Four BBMF fighters to accompany Lancaster at Cosford Air Show

The RAF Cosford Air Show is set to debut a special flypast from the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight on Sunday June 11. This year the BBMF celebrates its 60th Anniversary - its display at Cosford will feature four fighters (rather than the more usual two) performing alongside the Avro Lancaster.

Squadron Leader Andrew Millikin, Officer Commanding BBMF, said “I am delighted to be displaying at RAF Cosford on our 60th Anniversary. It will be the first of only three venues where we will display the Lancaster with four fighters. This will feature a four ship tailchase and synchro display. It will be a unique spectacle and one well worth catching.”
As well as the historic aircraft from the BBMF, the flying display will also consist of displays from all the Royal Air Force display teams, including the Red Arrows and the Typhoon. Other highlights currently confirmed for the flying display include the Swiss PC-7 Display Team, the only airworthy Westland Whirlwind helicopter and a mock airfield attack by a pair of BAC Strikemasters.
Tickets to the RAF Cosford Air Show 2017 are on sale now and visitors are encouraged to buy their tickets soon with Early-bird tickets currently priced at £22.00 per adult until March 27. The show is Advanced Ticket only with no tickets being available to purchase on the gate.
