It is not just the air displays that bring the crowds to Airshows. Many events and displays are held on the ground before and after the Airshow. Below you will find details of other events happening on the weekend of the Festival of Flight 2015.
The Ulster Military Vehicle Club will be attending the Newcastle Festival of Flight on the 8th August
The Ulster Military Vehicle Club exists to promote the restoration, preservation and display of ex-military vehicles. Through our own events and participation in those organised by other bodies we allow the public to get a close up look at historic vehicles that otherwise would have been only pictures in books or props in films
The North Down Model Aircraft Club shall once again be displaying their model aircraft at the Newcastle Festival of Flight. They have been a regular at the Festival of Flight over the past number of years.
The Ulster Aviation Society have confirmed they will once again be in Newcastle. However they have not yet confirmed what they will bring to the Festival of Flight. Last year they brought their Spitfire MK IIa and Alouette III helicopter and in 2013 they brought their Grumman F4F Wildcat.
