Show your Re-enactor wears at the Red Thunder Airshow 2018

Display your historical clothing and equipment at Red Thunder 2018 and receive free tickets to the Airshow!

Locals and visitors from around Australia are expected to attend this aviation extravaganza! Whilst a great venue to fly and display warbird and vintage aircraft, most aviation enthusiasts are interested in history.

Most of the aircraft attending Red Thunder Airshow are of WWI or WWII vintage. Re-enactor groups are encouraged to come for the weekend, setup camp and enjoy the celebration.

With camping on-site, evening food and band activities on the Saturday night, a great time should be had by all!

So … if you’re interested in helping out, are keen on warbirds and displaying your equipment and vehicle, then check out the FAQs and follow ‘the process’ detailed below. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Red Thunder Airshow 2018!
