Armed Forces Day

Bedford — 5 July 2015

Military Pageant with WWI Commemoration Airshow

9:00 am to 6:00 pm
The Shuttleworth Collection,
SG18 9EP

The Military Pageant with WWI Commemoration Airshow is dedicated to recognising the contribution of our Armed Forces – past and present.  We are proud that the Collection is home to the largest and most impressive collection of genuine airworthy First World War aircraft in Europe and this is your opportunity to see them fly.

The living history area provides the perfect opportunity for all the family to see and experience many aspects of the life of a First World War soldier.

We will also be welcoming a First World War replica tank here, First World War lorries and motorcycles.

Towards the end of the day, we will ask you to observe a two-minute silence, before a poppy drop (weather permitting) from the Bristol F2.b marking the end of this very special event.

Free parking, dogs permitted on-site (assistance dogs only in hangars and Swiss Garden).
