Woodspring Wings 2019

Saturday 13th July - Sunday 14th July 2019 10am to 5pm

The Woodspring Wings Model Aircraft Show has been a regular fixture on the flying calendar since shortly after the club began in 1989. It has since grown to be the biggest model aircraft show in the South West, and attracts around 5000 visitors each year. Held over two days on the second weekend in July, the show features all-day model flying displays by some of the country’s top pilots, many traders and of course food and drink to suit all tastes. In recent years we have also enjoyed fly pasts by the BBMF Lancaster, the Red Arrows and the BBMF Spitfire, something we hope to continue every year.

Located near Yatton in the Somerset Levels, Woodspring Wings is ideally placed to run a show of this size and popularity. The club owns a total of 21 acres of land including the flying field itself and adjacent fields meaning ample space for the event and plenty of parking on site.

The Woodspring Wings Model Aircraft show is a great day out for the whole family. Whether model enthusiasts or not, there is something to entertain everyone. in recent years our "Battle of Woodspring" simulated air battle with full pyrotechnic effects has proved very popular.

On the show field there are many traders, model and general, plus displays of model boats, cars and stands for several well known organisations including the RAFA, Air Ambulance and the Bristol Aero Collection. 

Some great food and drink is available at the foodcourt, operated by our partners Alfresco and the bar serves throughout the day with several great brews on tap.
