Today 5 new events have been added to the '2018 Events' page thank to the uploaded RAF Typhoon display team display schedule. RAF Benson, Wittering and Cranwell are all TBC families days events, this is because although listed on the Typhoon display schedule there is no confirmation that these events are families days. Hopefully these can be confirmed very soon.

I am looking for anyone to upload some RAF Families day pictures from the 2017 season to the website, any uploaded picture could be used for the main website image with all credit to the poster.

Hope to have more updates soon!

2018 season is nearly here..

It is that time of year again and the website is now updated for the RAF 100th Birthday season with the RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham families days already added to the 2018 events page, both these events are expected to be the largest events of this years RAF families days season.

RAF Coningsby holds a bi-annual  event so the last families day held was in 2016 which had a excellent display line up

RAF Marham holds families days annually and always seem to provide families and friends with may displays in the air and on the ground.

With this year being the 100th anniversary of the RAF, it is expected that this will be the main theme across the events held this year. Also the expected arrival of he RAF's first batch of F-35B's to RAF Marham may mean something special occuring.

Large update made

These events are RAF Marham, RAF Benson and RAF Odiham families days which are all the larger events that take place across the families days season.

The final addition to the calendar this update is the BrizeFest (RAF Brize Norton families days) which is more of a ground based event with usually a display from the RAF Falcons and some static aircraft.

July update

Well we have just gone past the half way stage of the RAF families days season and there has been some excellent events all over the UK. The last couple of days we have seen 2 of the UK's large families days, these being the RAF Marham and RAF Coningsby events with both events had put on excellent flying displays for those attending the event and of course the many people who were watching on the outside.

  • RAF Marham's families day on Thursday 21st had a little damper put on its event with the national covered incident of the attempted knife point abduction that happened in the morning hours just outside the station, but they still went ahead with the families day. The excellent flying display included a special flypast of Tornado GR4's and the Red Arrows.

 

  • RAF Coningsby families day that took place on Friday 22nd July had a very good display line-up, this included the excellent Belgium AF F-16 display team putting on a powerful display rarely seen at Families days in the UK and like Marham families day their was a very special flypast which included the BBMF (Lanc, Spit and Hurricane) and a RAF Typhoon.

If you have any pictures please feel free to upload them on the website.

 

 

 

May update

  • Well we are getting close to the first event of the season and this is not St Kendrew's Barracks open day (formally RAF Cottesmore), now this event is open to the public and is free of charge to attend, the reason its on here is because it is an event that is bringing all the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force units of Leicestershire and Rutland together and features flypasts from the Red Arrows and BBMF.

 

  • Breitling Wing Walkers and The Blades display team are attending RAF Coningsby families day this year which are great additions to the flying display. Also Jet Provost XW324 from Jet Aerobatics is making an appearance at some families days too.

  • Please feel free to upload your own families days pictures from previous or upcoming families day events.

  • Unfortunatly the type of information that i provide for aviaiton enthusiasts is not suited for the general public on Facebook and i have had to remove the Facebook page after various comment being made. But i am pleased that this website will run as usual.

  • The RAF Honington families day has been added to the calendar and the RAF Typhoon display dates have now been confirmed on a few events. I am still awaiting news on a few other events that usually take place including RAF Linton-On-Ouse, RAF Valley and RAF Odiham.

  • Today has seen a number of events added to this years calendar, with some participant updates, this means the majority of this year events have been added to the calendar with only a few more that should be added once information is available.

 

  •  It is agreat pleasure to see the return of the King Air display for this seaon after what seems like a large break from the display circuit.
