This years highlights will also include:

Wildcat Aerobatics -  It'll come as no surprise that the first booking was Old Buckenham's resident Aerobatic Display Team

Jet Provost - XM479 is believed to be the only display flying Jet Provost TMk3 A still in original RAF training colours in the UK. The Jet Provost was the worlds first all jet training aircraft, and was operated by the RAF for over 30 years. The display is tailored to show off the shape and the classic 1950s jet noise.

G-Force Aerobatics - Chris Burkett flying the Extra 300S. An amazing display of precision aerobatics

RV8tors - Flying their remarkably fast, fully aerobatic aircraft with powerful smoke systems, the RV8tors perform a thrilling and unforgettable display.

Lauren Richardson - Lauren is a 25 year-old Pitts Special aerobatic pilot and Britain's top female aerobatic pilot. Stylish, action-packed lines contrast against fast and graceful sweeping figures as Lauren shows off this beautiful red and white biplane in all its modern barnstorming and extreme aerobatic glory.

Old Flying Machine Company - The Old Flying Machine Company is arguably the best warbird display company in the UK and its Spitfire and Mustang Duo of MH434 and Ferocious Frankie must surely be the most famous single aircraft on earth. The stars of countless movies and TV programmes, these two legends are of major historical significance, yet they will be taken to their limits in a thrilling display, accompanied by the soundtrack of their mighty engines.

Brendan O'Brien - Brendan will be familiar from his TV series and numerous appearances as one of aviation’s leading exponents. Renowned as one of the most talented pilots every to display, Brendan will combine his extraordinary Flying Circus with an attempt at the shortest ever truck top landing. If successful we will be applying for this record to be recognized by the Guinness Book of Records, adding to over 200 FAI World Records Brendan already holds.

Matt Summers - Matt's airshow debut was at Old Buckenham 2012 in his Vans RV7. His flawless display was the talk of the aviation community immediately afterward, none of whom could believe that a "rookie" could wow the crowds as seasoned pros can. Matt's back for more, so make sure you see this inevitable air display legend at the beginning of his career.

John Sully - John Sully's Taylor Titch is a Formula One Racer, designed in 1964 to an RAeC competition specification using the Continental C 90 aero engine. The display consists of fast fly-pasts, zoom climbs, wing overs, Cuban eights and rolling manoeuvres. Owing to the small size of the aircraft the speed appears much higher than expected and gives a sparkling performance.

Adrian Willis - Adrian is a highly experienced aerobatic pilot and one of the UK's leading aerobatic instructors, teaching the next generation of aviators their trade. Not only is Adrian displaying at the show, but you can also book a trial lesson with him over the airshow weekend to experience the thrills of aerobatic flying first hand with a master of the art.
