    First Press brief: Abingdon Air & Country ‘Charity’ Show 2012


    The 13TH annual Abingdon Air & Country Show takes place on Sunday 6th
    May, at Abingdon Airfield, Oxfordshire, one of the regions larger
    charity events and helping to raise funding for the local Thames Valley
    & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust.

    Amongst the first confirmed participants so far are a World War Two P51
    Mustang and World War Two Hurricane as part of the Flying Displays, the
    Hurricane hopping over from its base at North Moreton, Didcot, owned by
    Peter Vacher. Military participants are being allocated over the coming
    few months.

    On the Ground, varied Arena Displays are being sought, Rock guitarist
    Rick Chase will be returning, and it is hoped once again one of the
    locally based Formula One teams will be providing a showcar statically
    amongst other attractions. There will be a small Static aircraft area
    also featuring around 40 types, including the United States Army
    Blackhawk helicopter based in Belgium,and hopefully RAF Benson based
    Merlin & Puma helicopters, frequent users of the airfield, subject to
    operations.

    The 2011 event raised £8,075.00 for the Air Ambulance Trust after
    essential running costs were paid for, but the Organiser Neil Porter is
    hoping this total can be matched in 2012.
    The show has raised £23,075.63 for the Air Ambulance since 2007, and a
    further £14,000 from 2001 – 2006 for the Oxford based Helen & Douglas
    House Respite Centres.

    Advance Tickets will be on sale from 1st Febuary at selected local
    Tourist Information Centres and online from our website via paypal
