Page 27 - R.AF St Athan 1960 +1961 Airshow

Sadly no report has been researched for the 1960 Airshow at St Athan so any help in providing any details would be appreciated by the Blog editors.

The only visitors were two resident from Rhoose Airport which flew in and out of the airfield twice each way during the day.
G-AGVN and G-APJV both departed to R.A.F St Athan Battle Of Britain Open Day on 17/9


With due credit to a member of Air Britain the following were recorded at the 1961 Battle of Britain Airshow.
