I don't know, but wonder whether there is one at RAF Valley on Anglesey? there are plenty of sites to choose from. Anglesey is lovely if you haven't been there.

Southport air show is very good and the CC site is just along the promenade from where it takes place. You wouldn't even have to leave the site to watch the planes

Best airshows I know are at Shuttlworth, old machines that are kept airworthy.


I have flown in there several times, and also make a point of going the day before the actual show when practice is going on, just as good as 'the real thing'!

Use UKCS campsite search,  to find a convenient /suitable site for yourself.

Windermere has an annual Airshow too - last week in July I think. Plenty of sites to stay at around and about. It's not a Military Airshow though

RNAS Culdrose isn't having one this year

This site gives information on Military Airshows

Keely :-))

The airshow is part of the carnival however this year there is a question mark on the airshow is in doublt due the the no fly zone due to the Olympics with the sailing at Portland

South Lincs DA do a rally for Waddington airshow. A colleague goes most years. The site is close enough to see the show from sitting outside your caravan.

Not strictly an airshow but Woodvale Rally at RAF Woodvale near Southport is well worth a visit. Willowbank caravan site is a short walk from the airfield. If you really want to you can camp on the field.

Woodvale Rally 04/08/2012 to 05/08/2012
A great day for all the family including steam traction engines, classic car displays, shows and events. Weekend camping also available

RIAT is the one if you are just doing one show, it is the biggest after all.

Best campsite would be this one http://www.airshowcamping.co.uk/ right on the airbase perimeter and most importantly very close to one of the entrance gates for show days unlike others that are nowhere near as close or so well organised.

I have been the last three years and always good but book soon as it fills up quick.
