Airshow Dispatches S07E03: Midlands Air Festival

Highlights from the 6th Midlands Air Festival at Ragley Hall, Alcester. The RAF Red Arrows made their 2024 UK debut, back to full 9-ship strength, but the most eye-catching participants came in the form of a line up of rare warbirds and classic jets from across Europe: Draken, Sabre, Gnat, Bronco, B-25, DC-6 and more. As usual, the festival included plenty of barnstorming, ballooning and pyrotechnic action. The RAF Typhoon display team performed a moving tribute to Sqn. Ldr. Mark Long.
