2012 RAF WADDINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW (30 June and 1 July)
... celebrating The Year of Lincolnshire Aviation, 100 years of the Central Flying School and ISTAR capability of the Royal Air Force
Held over the first weekend of July each year more than 140,000 visitors enjoy the two day extravaganza of the RAF Waddington International Air Show. RAF Waddington, the Royal Air Force’s home of surveillance and reconnaissance, is situated 3 miles south of the historic cathedral city of Lincoln.
The largest of all RAF Air Shows offers a truly unforgettable day's entertainment for the whole family. Since the inaugural show, held in 1995, the event has increased significantly in size and stature and is now one of the country’s largest and most popular air shows. The main purpose of the show is to increase public awareness and understanding of the RAF and its role today. All profits are donated to RAF and local charities.
The spectacular 7-hour flying display features the fabulous Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the RAF Falcons freefall parachute team and many more military and civilian aircraft from the UK and around the world.
The Air Show includes an extensive range of ground displays and over 250 trade stalls, craft marquees, a traditional funfair, classic cars & vintage military vehicles, two exhibition hangars with hands-on exhibits from all three Armed Forces.
There is even a chance to enjoy the thrill of a helicopter pleasure flight and see a magnificent bird's eye view of the Air Show and the local area - whatever your age you will find something of interest! Admission tickets are now available on www.waddingtonairshow.co.uk.
