We see them overhead our Air Show. Now meet their Officer Commanding on the ground. Squadron Leader Duncan Mason, Officer in Command of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and a Spitfire and Hurricane pilot to boot, will be giveing a talk and presentation in Welshpool's impressive Assembly Room on Monday evening, 18th May at 7.30.

Seriously, book early if you want to get a ticket to this.
I t's big, it's loud, it's shaped like a Toblerone. In big red letters it has to be Cold-War icon, Avro Vulcan XH558. What a coup, getting this amazing delta wing bomber back over Welshpool again. This is possibly the last chance to see this amazing aircraft flying and is a nerve-tingling billing for our air show. Visit www.vulcantothesky.org
They gave us a great display in 2012 and they're back again. The RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, this year comprising Lancaster, Dakota, Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane. Yes all four veteran machines will be gracing the skies of Welshpool this June.
Fast, agile, precise and very red. Whilst the Red Arrows won't be giving us a full display at Welshpool this year :-( They will still be treating us to a flypast. And this is still not to be missed. Your air show commentator will pre-warn you where to start looking to see them coming in - the rest is up to you.
We're all very pleased with ourselves this year in putting together such a tremendous action-packed show. When you think of all that's going on in the showground too, this has to be the most value for money day out in the whole country.
Finally, all displays are subject to operational availability, serviceability, the weather and the price of a loaf of bread. See you on the 14th June.
What a coup for Airshow 2015 - The Great War Display Team have confirmed their appearance at the Bob Jones Memorial Airshow, Welshpool next June 14th. In these centenary years, what could be a more fitting display. 9 replica aircraft, of five different types will perform choreographed dogfights right above our heads. Smoke swirls and engrossing aerial theatre. The words you are looking for are dagga-dagga-dagga-dagga !
Well, our poster did say this was "probably the best little air show in the country". Seems many of you agreed with us. More than 50 emails and letters have landed on our desk. Here's a selection of the comments received. Thanks to everyone for attending and for taking the trouble to write and tell us how much you enjoyed it. If it helps, we loved it too. See you in June 2015.
