Abingdon Air & Country Show

  • Date
    6th May 2007
  • Place
    Abingdon Airfield (Dalton Barracks), OX13 6JB (Dalton Barracks)
This is about the best day of the season, and if you come in your classic it's free! The entry fees from the public, however go to support the Thames Valley And Chiltern Air Ambulance.

One of the highlights last year was the Chinook performing manoeuvres that were clearly impossible!

This year the show will be opened by Polly Vacher MBE, who has set many records in her two round-the-world flights raising money for charity. (If you visit Wings Around The World, you will see that later this month she's setting off on an Around Britain Challenge.)
JEC Raffle Car - Nearly New XK8

This year we will have the Jaguar Enthusiast Club Raffle car at Abingdon. You can win a two year old car for a £1 ticket, and support charity!

The car is an immaculate, low mileage 2004 Jaguar XK8 4.2 litre coupe. It is fully equipped with satellite navigation, adaptive cruise control and 19" alloys. Raffle tickets are £1 each - a book of five for £5.

Last year's raffle raised £25,000 for Cystic Fibrosis. This year's charity is the NSPCC. Support a really good cause and be in with a chance to win a fabulous car!
