    RAF Odiham Families Day - 24th Aug 17!

    You are all cordially invited to RAF Odiham Families Day for the 3rd annual event (that we've come to)

    When does this event start? 24th Aug 2017 - opens approx 0800-1000 finished 1700-1800

    Where is RAF Odiham?: Just off Jct 5 of the M3 - Postcode RG29 1QT - (meet up beforehand approx 0900ish at 'The Mill House' Car park in NorthWarnborough - RG29 1ET. This saves on trying to hand passes out at the gate)

    Who can come along?: Anyone from the forum! Last year we had approx 22 cars - i'm always trying to get more in. Classics to Fox Bodies, Brand new to well used - all welcome.

    I generally work on 20ish cars, this is flexible, and since planning has only just started there should be a good amount of room.

    What is a Families day? - Families days are run at military bases in the UK as a time for service families to come along and see what they do. Flying displays, ground events and much more are run on these days.

    -This event is CLOSED to all members of the public - except where you have been invited in!

    What happens on these Families days? - There will be numerous displays going on from approx 1200 through to 1700.

    -Previous displays have included:

    Red Arrows
    Chinook Display
    Blades
    RAF Falcons / Red Devils
    C130
    A400M
    C17
    King Air
    Hawk
    Typhoon
    BBMF

    (All aircraft are dependent on weather, the amount of aircraft working etc...)

    'Only that much? Isn't there anything else??' - Of course!

    There will be multiple static aircraft, such as Apache, Chinook, Puma, WW1 biplanes, Army Air Corps Historic flight, sometimes a BBMF aircraft comes down for a static, and many small civilian aircraft too.

    Not enough? - well there's ground stalls from most sections on camp too! From the RAF Regiment with vehicles and weapons to Survival equipment - each club on camp will be able to have a stall, with the Motorcycle club, Motor club, Go-Kart club to name but a few.

    Right...Enough info for now! I'll continue to update this as we go along - if anyone has a question, fire away and i'll try to answer it.

    Dave

    Can you please put me down for this, likely with +1.

    It's quite close to Frimley for me to get there, but not been able to get along before with it being a weekday, but will plan ahead!

    Thank you Dave.

    Add your name to the list if you'd like to come along:

    About the date-
    The reason it's done on a weekday is so that the service personnel don't need to use their weekends to do it, so works better for them.
