The Air Fete at
RAF Mildenhall is considered to be one of the world's largest
military organised airshows and is hosted by the resident US
3rd Air Force. RAF Mildenhall has the 352nd Special Operations
Group stationed there along with the 100th Air Refuelling Wing.
RAF Mildenhall also had the SR71 Blackbird stationed there until
about 1988 (I think). This show is a personal favourite of mine,
not only because of the quality flying programme (lasting for
over 7 hours per day) but also because every 20 metres down the
static line there are BBQ stands set up by the various squadrons
trying to outsell each other ! The Air Fete is traditionally
held in the last weekend of May......
