The current R5 Air Displays Ltd team have extensive experience of flying events over many years and the map below details some of the venues where they have helped to produce successful events.


Here are a few of the events that our team have been involved with!

Royal Air Force Waddington International Airshow

Both Roger and Charles spent a number of years working together coordinating all the static and flying displays for the Royal Air Forces largest international airshow, prior to its cancellation in 2015. The show, based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire, featured over 8 hours of flying displays with mixed participants from both the Military and Civil world, from across the globe. From Fast Jets, to International display teams, Waddington featured many UK airshow firsts with crowds of over 165,000 attending.  The show was a huge success and was only cancelled due to changes taking place at Waddington and security concerns with regards, to the aircraft based on the station.
