Welcome to the Sywell Great War Airshow

The Sywell Airshow returns in 2014, once again supporting the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, with several favourites from previous shows returning along with some new faces - and some old friends. We have raised many thousands for the Air Ambulance in previous years and hope to continue with that record in 2014. This year's theme is the Centenary of The Great War and as part of that the skies above Northamptonshire will be filled with representative aircraft taking part in a breathtaking aerial battle.

We'll also have the world famous Red Arrows displaying for us in their 50th display season and the once in a lifetime opportunity to see TWO Lancaster bombers in the air at the same show! The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum are sending their Lancaster to the UK for a brief tour and we'll also have the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster!

In addition to the flying display there will be aircraft on static display along with military and vintage vehicles, numerous trade stands, flight simulator, fairground rides and the Sywell Aviation Museum - the Sywell Airshow is the perfect family day out!

The Sywell Airshow Committee is pleased to report that the total raised by the 2012 show was £50,156.34; the principal beneficiary was The Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance who received a cheque for £46,425.34, the largest ever single donation received by the charity! This funded between 30-40 'shouts' each one a potentially life-saving trip.

This sum represents a huge increase on the 2010 total of £31,744 raised for the helicopter charity!

In addition the Committee were able to present Sywell County Primary School with ten laptops badly needed for their IT suite at a cost of £3731.00 from airshow fundraising.

Michael Bletsoe-Brown, Managing Director of Sywell Aerodrome said "We were absolutely knocked out by the support of the Public at the airshow in August, our volunteer team worked solidly for over a year in advance of the show, giving up their spare time, to raise this huge sum for local good causes. We did well in 2010 but this amount really raised the bar for the next show - on behalf of the Committee can I thank all our supporters, volunteers, vistors, friends and pilots for their support - it has really borne fruit!"

The biannual airshow is next held on the 17th August 2014.
