Thousands of military vehicles will be on display. Look out for tanks, artillery, armoured and amphibious vehicles, cars, Jeeps, bicycles and motorbikes, emergency and commercial vehicles – and lots more. Living History scenes will provide a unique picture of life in conflict with depictions from WW1 to the present – see the British living in trenches, GIs in Vietnam, Russians relaxing with an accordion after a hard day in battle, or Germans plotting their next moves!

A family event which includes static military vehicles, living history re-enactment groups, arena events, military stalls, children’s entertainment and food stalls to make this a perfect day out. The Aircraft Over the years Combined Ops has attracted some of the most spectacular aircraft in the country. In 2016 we welcomed the B-25N ‘Mitchell’ – Royal Netherlands Air force Bomber and The Catalina 11005 – Royal Canadian Air Force. As well as an air display from the BBMF – Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane and flypast from the Red Arrows. 2015 we had the incredible Vulcan bomber which not only filled the skies with its shear size but its deafening sound. 2014 saw the only two flying Avro Lancaster bombers doing a full display. The Aerodrome attracts lots of vintage aircraft, from all over the country. Throughout each day aircraft will be landing and taking off as well as many aircraft on static display.
