12th Great Warbirds Air Display ’93

The event centres around World War II fighters and bombers and, in particular, B17 Flying Fortress, Sally B, joined this year by the French B17, Pink Lady. We feature these in Part I plus, from the same era, RAF, US Navy and a host of USAF types. The massed formations of these aircraft are quite breathtaking.

In Part II we include several aircraft from the ‘fabric and string’ era and in this 75th anniversary year of the founding of the RAF, we feature a wide range from the RAF’s past but the Tornado and Red Arrows bring us up to date with a contrast.
