This popular event is in its eighteenth year and is still run by its original volunteer team. It is staged to help raise funds and awareness for the airfield-based Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance. Given reasonably good weather across the southern UK, visitors can expect to see over 100 vintage/classic/modern light aircraft landing on this former wartime naval air-station. The event also hosts an equal number of classic vehicles of all types from the 1930s to modern super-cars. There is model flying from bi-planes to fast jets. Subject to tasking, the NEW air-ambulance helicopter will visit crowd-side to 'meet and greet'. There is all-day catering and a special Barbecue and Hog Roast. A unique feature is the lunch-time 'air-park-open' allowing everyone the to walk around the aircraft and take close-up photos. This year's traditional 'Fly-past Salute' by the BBMF will feature the newly overhauled LANCASTER escorted by TWO SPITFIRES.
We also hope to be given another thrilling fly-over by the RED ARROWS and are in regular contact with other with other transiting display aircraft.To keep up to date see our website at www.dorsetcarclub,co.uk and follow us on Facebook.We pride ourselves on running a friendly and relaxed show for all the family while maintaining the high safety standards essential for aviation events.
