Several aircraft from the RAF Museum collection will be joining the line-up in a static display at the RAF Cosford Air Show, taking place on Sunday 10 June. This year’s show will feature a unique mix of aircraft, spanning the 100-year history of the RAF, which will be showcased in the flying display and in a special RAF100 static exhibition. Helping to make this display possible, the RAF Museum will be rolling out eight aircraft from its collection to be exhibited outside on the airfield, as part of the ground displays.
Aircraft confirmed to appear will include the collection’s Bristol M1C, Sopwith 1½ Strutter, Boulton Paul Defiant, Gloster Gladiator I, the de Havilland Devon C2, Percival Pembroke C1, and the Scottish Aviation Jetstream T1. This will be the first time in many years these aircraft have been moved outside for public display.
RAF Museum Cosford Public Relations Executive, Michelle Morgans said: “We are delighted to be able to support the show again this year and celebrate the RAF centenary in such a spectacular way. In addition to the aircraft being moved out of our hangars for display on the airfield, we will also be bringing the Gloster Meteor F9/40 out of storage exclusively for the show, which we hope will prove popular with visitors.”
Tickets for the RAF Cosford Air Show are advanced sale only and will not be available to purchase on the gate. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the museum or via www.cosfordairshow.co.uk
