Sunday 19 June 2011 - Kemble

"The Cotswold Air Show 2011" was held at Kemble
on 18-19 June 2011 - attendees included -
The theme of the show was the Hawker Hunters 60th birthday
with eight aircraft airborne and flying in formation!
Four of the Hunters flew a "missing man" formation in honour
of Steve Mills, Kemble's Chief Fire Officer, who was killed in an
accident earlier in the year
Two Dutch aircraft attended - Hawker Hunter F6A N-294....
.... and two seat Hawker Hunter T8C N-321
The Vulcan team emphasized its effect on crowd attendance
but even its presence could not persuade large crowds out in
Saturday's cold, wet and windy weather
The big noise on Sunday was provided by two Tornado GR4's
This year's display Tucano T1 ZF378 is in a special scheme
Two others having been written off over recent years, Sea Fury
VX281 is a new additional to the Royal Navy Historic Flight

Apart from the air show, Kemble is known for its stored
and soon to be scrapped aircraft. Most recent arrivals are
six ex RAF Dominies....
.... also stored are three ex Farnair Hungary Fokker F27's
- they seem unlikely to find new operators
