13th Annual Abingdon Air & Country Charity Show..6th May

Post by colin smith » Sun Jan 08, 2012 8:47 am

The 13TH annual Abingdon Air & Country Show takes place on Sunday 6th
May, at Abingdon Airfield, Oxfordshire, one of the regions larger
charity events and helping to raise funding for the local Thames Valley
& Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust.

Amongst the first confirmed participants so far are a World War Two P51
Mustang and World War Two Hurricane as part of the Flying Displays, the
Hurricane hopping over from its base at North Moreton, Didcot, owned by
Peter Vacher. Military participants are being allocated over the coming
few months.

On the Ground, varied Arena Displays are being sought, Rock guitarist
Rick Chase will be returning, and it is hoped once again one of the
locally based Formula One teams will be providing a showcar statically
amongst other attractions. There will be a small Static aircraft area
also featuring around 40 types, including the United States Army
Blackhawk helicopter based in Belgium,and hopefully RAF Benson based
Merlin & Puma helicopters, frequent users of the airfield, subject to
operations.

The 2011 event raised £8,075.00 for the Air Ambulance Trust after
essential running costs were paid for, but the Organiser Neil Porter is
hoping this total can be matched in 2012.
The show has raised £23,075.63 for the Air Ambulance since 2007, and a
further £14,000 from 2001 – 2006 for the Oxford based Helen & Douglas
House Respite Centres.

Advance Tickets will be on sale from 1st Febuary at selected local
Tourist Information Centres and online from our website via paypal

On the day prices are Adults £15, Senior Citizens £10, Child 5-15yrs
£5, Under 5s Free
