This month, one lucky reader has the chance to win a pair of tickets to the RAF Cosford Air Show.

The skies above the West Midlands will be alive with the sound of roaring jets and the nostalgic hum of Second World War aircraft, when RAF Cosford Air Show returns on Sunday 19 June 2016.

The only official RAF air show held in the UK, the event will feature entertainment from display teams including the Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team.

On the ground, a dedicated hangar will house interactive science and technology exhibits, while the 1950s-inspired ‘Vintage Village’ will feature historic aircraft and vehicles, live music, and a tearoom.

Attendees will also be able to explore the RAF Cosford Museum, home to over 75 historic aircraft, including the world’s oldest Spitfire. Visitors can tour the museum’s ‘First World War in the Air’ exhibition, where they can view aircraft of the Great War at close quarters, alongside the personal effects of local man Second Lieutenant Kevin Robert Furniss of the Royal Flying Corps.
