Abingdon Air & Country Charity Show

   
Town/City : Abingdon
County : Oxfordshire
Country : England
Post code : OX13 6JQ
Web Site :  www.abingdonfayre.com

RAF Abingdon traditionally held annual Airshows in September and these were a hugely popular event with both the local community as well as with people from further afield.

The 13TH annual Abingdon Air & Country Show takes place on Sunday 6th May, at Abingdon Airfield, Oxfordshire, one of the regions larger charity events and helping to raise funding for the local Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust.

Amongst the first confirmed participants so far are a World War Two P51 Mustang and World War Two Hurricane as part of the Flying Displays, the Hurricane hopping over from its base at North Moreton, Didcot, owned by Peter Vacher. Military participants are being allocated over the coming few months.

On the Ground, varied Arena Displays are being sought, Rock guitarist Rick Chase will be returning, and it is hoped once again one of the locally based Formula One teams will be providing a showcar statically amongst other attractions. There will be a small Static aircraft area also featuring around 40 types, including the United States Army Blackhawk helicopter based in Belgium,and hopefully RAF Benson based Merlin & Puma helicopters, frequent users of the airfield, subject to operations.

The 2011 event raised 8,075.00 for the Air Ambulance Trust after essential running costs were paid for, but the Organiser Neil Porter is hoping this total can be matched in 2012. The show has raised 23,075.63 for the Air Ambulance since 2007, and a further 14,000 from 2001 2006 for the Oxford based Helen & Douglas House Respite Centres.

Advance Tickets will be on sale from 1st Febuary at selected local Tourist Information Centres and online from our website via paypal On the day prices are Adults 15, Senior Citizens 10, Child 5-15yrs 5, Under 5s Free
