Normally Cosford is a 40minute drive for us. After 3 hours and still 4 miles of stationary traffic ahead we turned back. Best decision we could have made. Run by clueless idiots. Never again. Do not go.

I’m not into air shows, but went with my husband, however I found this one very relaxed and lots of planes to see flying and static. We went early enough so getting in wasn’t a problem tho getting out took a good couple of hours,...More

Cosford airshow was fabulous in 2018. We got there very early but soon I heard that traffic built up so be prepared for queues to get in if you don’t arrive first thing. The day was amazing. We had fantastic flying displays with full commentary...More

Everything was great. We were in the Cosford club enclosure and had the most brilliant views of the displays. We were staying in Ironbridge. Taxi to Telford then train to RAF Cosford. Took us just over an hour in total, so not bad at all....More

Set off at 06.45 from Shrewsbury. Avoided the m54 like the plague. Entered by a back gate after parking in a massive field pretty much as far away from the entry gate as possible but we were directed there. Totally enjoyed the day. Great air...More

Great airshow. My favourites were the Belgian and French fighters. Red Arrows were very pretty and their formation flying is unique. Loads of visitors making it crowded to get in and out to/from the show. Far between the toilets otherwise well executed.

We had no problems finding RAF Cosford. We overshot the air show markers at junction 3 on the M54 and got off the motorway at Junction 4. This was a blessing, as we found a small country road, that had been designated 'one way only',...More
