24 to the Fore!


2024 is going to be a busy year!  

Already we have a number of solid bookings including our return to the Cosford Airshow in early June. It's been a long time since we were at Cosford, so naturally we're absolutely delighted that it's on this year's list.

The full list of 2024's events schedule can be found here.

It's been a quiet winter, we flew Father Christmas in to Naomi House which is our chosen charity and at Easter (March) we'll be returning with the Easter Bunny to deliver chocolates and smiles to everyone including the staff.  

Meanwhile the crews are busily ticking all of the statutory boxes with our annual CAA licence and Display authorisation checks over the next few weeks and we have an extremely local (3 x aircraft) static display at Steventon to support the opening of new premises at the military gallery - a fine art gallery specialising in military and aviation art. 

In mid - May we are once again being welcomed by our good friends at the Abingdon Air & Country Show.


The work on XZ678 our ex Army Lynx AH7 is progressing nicely, it's complete overhaul is very well underway and she is firmly on track to return to the skies. 

A number of the Squadron last flew her in 1987 when she was a Mk 1 Lynx and are understandably very excited to be involved with seeing her fly once again.





Indian Summer

a sky full of aircraft

It's been a quiet few months due to the weather, unfortunately we had to cancel the Boscombe Down QINETIC event and also the RAF Benson display also had to be curtailed to a 4 ship flypast due to poor weather.

Nonetheless we had a fabulous day at Brize Norton Families day last Saturday - with an attendance of around 12,500 and beautiful, glorious sunshine.

Whatsmore we have some fantastic news, we are absolutely delighted to be venturing North of the border to display at the Ayr International Festival of Flight on the 8th & 9th of September.

Our good friends Team Raven will also be there and we hope to join them for a formation pass or two - so cameras at the ready! We'll be publishing our transit route up to Prestwick on our Facebook page, so please check to see what time we may be overflying your area, we aim to transit up through the Lake District and refuel at Carlisle.(TBC)

A few weeks ago we sent an aircraft to Syerston to support the National Air and Space Camp a national Cadet day with over 600 cadets attending - the aim was to inspire the next generation of aviators - we think we helped them achieve it!

Mid-season 2023

The mid-season is upon us and it's been a blast so far. 

break-breakWe've enjoyed some terrific outings and our four ship display has been incredibly well received across the land. 

Initially 2023 was looking like a very lean year, not only for us but for the airshow circuit as a whole but thankfully this has been proven not to be the case - we've been very busy and we're very grateful for that.

In the coming few weeks we have a CAA audit to prepare for along with a static display at Qinetic at Boscombe Down and another four ship display at RAF Benson.  Despite both of these events being closed to the public they are terrific opportunities for us to practice, enhance and perfect our displays - and of course continue to build the brand.

The reception we receive from or display audiences is truly humbling and our displays clearly invoke many fond memories amongst those that have been blessed to work with this wonderful aircraft in previous decades. 


It's clear that they appreciate our efforts and the very many messages of support on social media are hugely appreciated.    

 We've recently added a static display at Syerston to our schedule for 23rd August.

Our Lynx renovation project (XZ-678) is progressing slowly but surely and we're currently embarking on a modular respray.  The project can be followed at lynxflight.co.uk

Midlands Air Festival


 After a tremendously successful outing to the Abingdon  show, we now look forward to displaying as a four ship over the coming two days at The Midlands Air Festival. Our first visit to this event. 

 Whatsmore the weather is set to be glorious! 

 There's a little twist to our display, which we're sure the  more astute of our followers will guess, if you can't  guess then please get to Ragley hall in Warwickshire  and enjoy what is set to be a very impressive display.  

 Even if you can guess - this is an event not to be missed.
