The Military and Flying Machines show will come to Upminster next weekend
Enjoy the impressive Military and Flying Machines show when it comes to Upminster next weekend.
This year’s show will have restrictions due to the Civil Aviation Authority, Olympics and weather conditions, which has affected the planning of the flying display schedule.
But you can still see the historic BBMF Lancaster along with the impressive Royal Navy Sea Fury, which will be on display on Saturday, August 4, and Sunday, August 5, and the BBMF Spitfire and Hurricane will be displayed along with the Lancaster on Saturday.
Organisers said that despite not having an extensive air display as in the past, they will have a static aircraft including the WW2 vintage German ME108; a WW2 vintage Harvard and the Royal Navy Merlin helicopter.
The show, which will be from 10am to 5pm in Damyns Hall Aerodrome, in Aveley Road, will also include more than 300 military and classic vehicles, including tanks and the Army’s latest and largest recovery vehicle.
There will also be history displays, arena activities with fire power demonstrations, a Wild West battle and a medieval display.
Live entertainment will include a 1940s style big band and singers, vintage fun fair, and you can also meet veterans.
