- Battle of Britain Air Show flies into the Cotswolds

August 19, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can announce that the Battle of Britain Air Show will be dog-fighting its way to the Cotswolds midway through next month.

Set to take place at Cotswold Airport in Kemble on September 18th and 19th, the event is a celebration of the epic confrontation between the British and German air forces during World War II.

Cotswold hotel guests with a love of history will be treated to a host of family-friendly activities at the show, including re-enactments, trade stands and displays of classic and military vehicles.

The Cirencester Model Aircraft club will be displaying a selection of its miniature planes and up to 50 static vintage aircraft will also be on show, but the big draw for many will be the airborne action.

A Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will take place featuring RAF Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane planes, plus a short display from the Jet Provost and a Russian-built Antonov AN2, the world's biggest single-engine bi-plane.

As a further incentive to visit the Battle of Britain Air Show, ticket prices have been frozen at 2009 levels.
