Large Model Air Show, model planes lined up

Monday 30th May 2022

The Large Model Air Show is back at Cosford! Scale models of iconic aircraft will be taking to the skies at the annual Large Model Air Show from the 2 – 3 July 2022. Taking place on the airfield at RAF Cosford, this famous air show in miniature is an absolute must for all. 

Visitors will be able to see a whole range of models designed, built and flown by members of the Large Model Association from biplanes to modern day jets. Watch scale model aircraft take off to the sky all day long. From a distance in the skies, the models truly look like the real thing! More than 50 traders and food vendors, entertainment and activities will be offered for the little ones.

The sky is the limit…

For the first time in the event’s history, there will be three flightlines with a huge number of models of some of the most iconic aircraft. The largest model Vulcan which has graced the skies above the Large Model Air Show for more than 10 years will retire after this year’s event – don’t miss out and come and see it fly for the last time!

The new third flightline will be buzzing with the most exciting flying programme.  Up to 60 drone flyers from the British Drone Flying Association will be racing around a circuit. A fantastic programme of 3D flying of aerobatic models, including the British 3D masters champion, will amaze visitors.

Do you want to have a go yourself? Young (and not so young visitors) can have a try at flying some of the training aircraft or join colleagues from TA Education to try their hand at flying a drone. Start with the basics of drone flying before attempting to soar through hoops under tunnels, and over barriers. Those who master the controls quickly can take on the challenge of completing our obstacle course and setting the fastest time of the day. This free activity is a drop-in activity suitable for children aged 8 or above. Please be aware there will be a requirement to queue during busy periods.
