The Chinook Helicopter which amazed crowds last year will return again. This versatile helicopter has been involved in most of the recent UK military operations including Afghanistan and Iraq.

The RAF's most advanced fighted aircraft, the Eurofighter Typhoon will be making its third appearance at the show. The Typhoon is an agile, single seat, multi-role aircraft, optimised for high-altitude supersonic air combat, but also capable of operating at much lower levels in air-to-air ground roles.

This year is the RAF's 90th anniversary, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, comprising of the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire will fly at the show. The historical aircraft from the flight have appeared in all 20 Sunderland International Airshows.The RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team will close the show on Saturday and open the show on Sunday with a dramatic beach landing.

Role Demo
Seaburn beach and skies are to be the stage for a rescue mission where the UK's armed forces work together in a ficticious but realistic military exercise.

The scenario is based on a rescue mission where UN personnel are captured by a hostile force and held hostage in a coastal enemy camp. Live radio calls and special effects will bring the demonstration alive and give a real feeling of how the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force operate globally.

As some of you may or may not know - as the case may be - I have around 350GB+ of military newsreels and related combat footage from World Wars I and II, as well as some other military conflicts. I currently have around 3000 various videos, mostly German, British, Vichy French, Italian, Hungarian and Soviet as well as a few other countries. If there is anything any ACG member is looking for in particular - a certain battle, campaign, military equipment, units, etc - post your request here if interested and I will see what I can find.
