In addition to a wide range of static exhibits in the Historic Aircraft Park, at least two aircraft from each decade of the 20th Century will open the flying display - a powerful expression of the rapid technological advances of aerospace designers and engineers.
A major theme for the SBAC at this year's Show is the way that aerospace in the U.K. is active in supporting the community through career oppotunities and through our care for the environment. ( ... ) The environment is another important initiative and one of aviation's greatest challenges.
