Kempsford: Fairford airshow fringes
July 18 at 18:30
Thursday 18th July is the final day before the Fairford Airshow begins. During the day and early evening aircraft will be arriving for the show and potentially also practicing their display routines. Some members may be interested in buying a “Park & View” ticket which allows access from 7.30 to 19.30 for £15 per person
(https://www.airtattoo.com/airshow/visiting/airshow-tickets/park-and-view). “it’s well worth it, particularly for photographers as it permits photography of aircraft destined for static display without the usual clutter, cones and people.”
For those who aren’t able to take the day off work, the meeting will be at Kempsford where there will be opportunities to see the airfield from the outside and perhaps also see some aerial displays.
Meet: 6.30pm at The George
How to get there
For the Park and View follow the instructions on the FIAT website.
For Kempsford, take the A419 from Swindon to Cirencester and take the turning for Latton and Kempsford (immediately after the Cricklade junction). Follow the signs to Kempsford from the roundabout.
If you are coming as a guest, please make sure you introduce yourself.
