Charity Air Day Flying Displays, Classic Cars & 1940s Swing Band at Seething Airfield

2013 is a special year for Seething Airfield as it marks the 70th anniversary of its opening as RAF Seething, or Station 146 as its occupants, the United States Eighth Airforce named it. 

Construction of the airfield started in 1942 but wasn't completed until 1943. This year you can experience a real flavour of that time period and we are delighted to welcome the B-17 "Sally B" to the Air Day. 

You will be able to enjoy the unmistakable sounds of the Mustang which would have known the airfield quite well 70 years ago, although none were actually based here, together with other aircraft of the era.

There will also be some fabulous up-to-date displays and, in particular, Seething favourites the Trig Aerobatic Team, flown by Richard Grace and Dave Puleston, their display never fails to thrill.

As well as amazing planes and aerial displays, there will also be an amazing range of Classic Cars & Military Vehicles for visitors to view, as well as a Fantastic 18 Piece 1940s Swing Band, Charity Stalls, Bars, Refreshments & Food, and Childrens Attractions.

Also, don't forget to visit the Seething Control Tower Museum. The former RAF Seething's rich history is captured in the iconic control tower of the airbase which is now home to a fine museum charting the life and work of those who worked there during the War years. 

So see you there on Sunday 8th September. Gates open at 10am.
