Sywell Airshow soars!

19th August 2014

A record number of 10,000 people attended the Sywell Great War Airshow, held on the 17th August 2014, which for the first time ever, was sold out in advance.

The Airshow suffered somewhat from unseasonable weather which unfortunately grounded the two Lancaster bombers due to appear, however the majority of display acts took to the skies in often very tricky conditions to thrill the public with aerobatics and more.

Airshow crowd Canberra

From Mustang and Spitfire fighters, Canberra and Gnat jets to 1930s biplanes and even a glider, the show had something for everyone. It began with an aircraft Poppy drop adjacent to re-enactors in WW1 uniforms, followed by a minute's silence to remember those who lost their lives in The Great War.

An airshow spokesman said "Our pilots displayed superbly despite adverse wind conditions. We were all disappointed that the Lancasters could not attend, but everyone respected the decision not to risk such grand old ladies in marginal conditions. The crowd were thrilled with this year's lineup and the Red Arrows were the icing on the cake.

For many, however, our simple act of Remembrance brought a tear to their eye. We welcomed the largest ever numbers of visitors to Sywell having been amazed that we sold out in advance - and are very grateful for everyones' support - thank you"

Wingwalkers Red Arrows

The biennial show is organised entirely by volunteers and is held to raise funds for the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and other local charities. The show is on course to produce another record donation!

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster will be attending The Sywell Classic, Piston and Props, on Saturday 27th September 2014.
