Stow Maries Flying Day

WW1 Aviation Heritage Trust Flying Day at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome

As the summer reaches its climax Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome will be hosting another of its splendidly popular flying days.

On 28 August the skies of Essex will once again play host to the sounds of roaring aircraft as the WW1 aerodrome takes visitors back in time to the heady days of classic aviation at its next flying day, in association with the WW1 Aviation Heritage Trust.

A broad range of spectacular aircraft, from old favourites like the Albatros D.III and famed Sopwith Snipe - to the rarely seen Dragon Rapide – will be zooming in for visitors to see. The aerodrome’s perennial favourites, the Turbulent Display Team, will be making an appearance too, with their crazy antics guaranteed to bring a smile and a gasp.

Ian Flint, CEO at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome, said:

Our flying events are great days out for the family with plenty for all to do, especially for children, who can enjoy traditional lawn games, the new Stow Maries Bear Trail, musical entertainment, as well as the ever popular pedal-planes.

Of course this is not forgetting the wonderfully successful interactive museum, pleasant walks and interesting tours. We look forward to welcoming all that attend.”

There will be a wide variety of stalls to wander amongst, selling all manner of interesting things, as well as the aerodrome’s popular shop with its bulging range of goodies. Hot and cold snacks, drinks and refreshments will be available throughout the day to enjoy in the traditional Airmen’s Mess or outside whilst watching the aircraft.

The event is from 10:00 to 17:00 on Sunday 28th August. Tickets are £15 for adults, while children under 16 visit free. Flying is subject to weather and serviceability and tickets are limited, so book online (via the Stow Maries website) to avoid disappointment on the day.
