Exciting news arrived today that the Swiss Hornet Display Team will be performing at the RAF Cosford Air Show on Sunday 9Th June 2019, showcasing their breath-taking fast jet display of the legendary McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet.
The Swiss Hornet Display Team won the award for best flying display on their previous visit to our Air Show in 2015. They are regarded as one of the best fast jet displays in Europe and we’re sure their display will be a highlight of the day for all of our visitors.
The Hornet was designed as a naval fighter with reinforced undercarriage, folding wings and tail-hook, however it is used by many land-based air arms across the globe. The Swiss Air Force operate their fleet of Hornet for air defence duties, armed with a 20mm Cannon and Sidewinder missiles.
