AIRCRAFT representing nearly a century of aviation will be flying in for the two-day Rougham Air Display and Classic Car Show.

Organisers of the show on August 13 and 14 at the former bomber airfield are expecting aircraft ranging from World War One fighters to modern jets.

World War Two marques will also be well represented. Europe’s last airworthy B17 Flying Fortress, the Sally B, will represent the type which flew from Rougham with the 94th Bomb Group.

She will be joined by Mustangs, a Dakota, P28 Fennick, Boeing Stearmans and L4 Cubs, DH Rapide and Tiger Moth, plus the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Spitfires and Hurricane.

More modern aircraft include Folland Gnats and Strikemaster jets. The Pitts Duo and Red Hawk display teams will do aerobatic displays over the two days.

On the ground will be World War Two re-enactors and their vehicles and more than 300 classic cars.
