Public days will be Saturday July 24 and Sunday July 25, with free entry to children under 16.

There will be a four-and-a-half hour flying display, with a strong historical theme, including a dogfight between two ME109s and two Spitfires to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. They will be joined by a genuine WW2 veteran – a Mark 1 Hawker Hurricane R441.
