Fast forward to 2018, a year that marked the Centenary of the formation of the RAF and the end of the Great War, plus it was also the Team’s 30th Anniversary, and a hugely successful year with over 50 displays and flypasts flown.
The Team has displayed at a variety of airshows and public events at home and in Europe from world famous events like Farnborough, RIAT and Duxford to the impressive venues of Blenheim Palace, Broadlands and Highclere Castle.
The display includes a unique selection of Great War aircraft including Triplanes, SE5’s an Avro 504 and Junkers CL1. The aircraft are flown by a very experienced group of pilots ranging from test pilots, fast jet pilots, airline pilots and flying instructors with a long history of thrilling airshow crowds.
The display is carefully choreographed and precisely flown to mimic the chaos of a dynamic WW1 dogfight. It is a unique chance to see 4 Great War aeroplanes flying together and certainly the only opportunity to see the aircraft performing as they would have in aerial battles with a series of head on passes and spiral dives.
The Bremont Great War Team were the first team to be cleared by the CAA to display at 75 metres from the crowd under certain conditions. This makes for a much more intimate and entertaining display where you can see the pilots swivelling their heads as they manoeuvre in close proximity to get a “lead” on each other – just like a real dog fight! All accompanied by choregraphed pyro techniques!
A show not to be missed!
