The air show is one of the biggest and best air shows with hundreds of aircraft offering death-defying displays to an expected 170000 visitors according to the information available via a Google search. This is the 40th anniversary of the event with gates opening at 7.30am, and special traffic arrangements for miles around to cope with the expected influx on to the site of the air show.
