Herald and Gazette series teams up with Shoreham Airshow

THE Herald and Gazette series is again teaming up with Shoreham Airshow to help raise money for RAFA.

With plans for this year’s airshow, set to take place on September 1 and 2, already well underway, editor Colin Channon, reporter Sheena Campbell and managing director Karl Dimmock met organisers last week.

Once again, we are selling tickets and helping to promote the show, with the theme for this year being 100 Years of the RAF Central Flying School.

Acting airshow organiser, Derek Harber, said: “It is nice to welcome, once again, Johnston Press as our major media sponsor for the airshow.

“This will be their fourth year and it has now developed into an excellent working relationship helping to promote the RAFA Wings Appeal.

“To date, Shoreham has given nearly £1.7million to RAFA.”

This year’s airshow will see a lot more action on the ground, with a one-hour break in the flying displays to allow visitors to explore everything the airshow has to offer.

Press officer John Periam said: “It is important we look at ways to improve the Shoreham Airshow.

“A dedicated flying committee will be more involved in selecting the air displays, covering all aspects of aviation history.

“Military vehicles will be high on the list, also giving the public a chance to see them in action.”
