Yeovilton Air Day 2009

Aircraft Displays

The extensive flying display will feature many historic and modern aircraft types in a mass flypast to celebrate a 100 years of Naval Aviation.  Yeovilton based Commando Sea King and Lynx helicopters and other Maritime Squadrons will also demonstrate their capabilities in the infamous Commando Assault Demonstration with plenty of pyrotechnics!  The RAF and Army as well as foreign military participants will also join in with fast jet displays, static aircraft, aerobatic display teams and historic flypasts.  (Images represent 2008 participants) F- Flying, S – Static.
