RAF Northolt is 100 years old, and will be hosting a centenary open day on 13th June, with a flying display, static aircraft, stalls and many other activities and demonstrations.

This is a rare opportunity to get a closer look at this extremely busy and important RAF station on the outskirts of London.


Event Programme

  • 30 static and display aircraft
  • 8 flying aircraft
  • Various stands, exhibits and stallholders
  • RAF Police Dog-Show
  • Drill display from Queen’s Colour Squadron RAF Regiment
  • Demonstration 621 Explosive Ordnance Disposal Squadron
  • RAF Falcons parachuting display

I mentioned the anniversary earlier this year, and tickets sold out — but they have now released some more tickets.

The closest tube station is Ruislip Gardens, on the Central Line. The open day takes place on Saturday 13 June from 11am to 5pm.

Tickets cost £11.95 — book here

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you
