Run by volunteers for the benefit of children's and local charities, the Little Gransden Air and Car show has grown from a small local show to one of the major UK airshows, whilst retaining its friendly, local feel.

The show had well over three and a half hours of varied flying; classic, historic and ex-military vehicles and plenty of ground attractions.

More photos and a review will be here soon.

About the Show

The show has been going since 1992, when it started as a car show with a single flying display. Now there are usually military and vintage vehicles and over three hours of flying alongside other ground attractions.

The show is organised by volunteers for the benefit of Children in Need and local charities.

Amongst the organising team are David Poile MBE (now retired from his position after 30 years with the show), renowned pilot Mark Jefferies, John Jefferies, photographer Adam Cundick, Silver Command Organiser Ollie Hope and event organiser Pip Shoobert.
