RAF Brize Norton families' Day 4 Sept 2021 - Members Only


Recommended Posts

We have been invited to participate in the Motorsports section of the RAF Brize Norton Families' Day this year on Sept 4th. This is how their Ctte present the event;

I would like to start by saying thank you so much for agreeing to be a part of Royal Air Force Brize Norton’s Families Day 2021. We are very grateful to have you joining us and having all your wonderful vehicles on display really is quite a spectacle, especially whilst parked alongside the largest aircraft in the RAF’s strategic transport fleet. I just need to remind you of a few points, and detail some information for the day below so please do read through carefully. Those of you who are MDs, chairs, and organisers for your clubs and companies please pass this email on to all of your drivers.

What is a Families Day?

For those of you who have not joined us before the Families Day is a chance for all the serving and ex-serving RAF families and friends to get together to enjoy a wonderful day out. It is a chance for us to give back to them and say a big thank you for all their support, patience and understanding of the roles and responsibilities we fulfil all over the world on behalf of our country and Her Majesty the Queen.

The event will consist of a funfair, static aircraft displays, a fly past, a parachute display, food stalls, traders, an open air concert in the evening and a ton of other entertainments and festivities.

Being part of the Autosport Display you will get exclusive access to an active airfield and will be parked on the 99 Sqn pan alongside the UK’s strategic transport fleet and various other static aircraft. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get access to an active military airfield, park alongside some of the most iconic transport aircraft of the modern era –  the C-17 Globemaster,       C-130J Hercules, A400M Atlas and Voyager; plus also be part of a day that brings happiness to thousands of RAF personnel and their families.

 

How will the day run?

 Between 8:00am and 10:00am you will arrive at RAF Brize Norton Main Gate. On arrival your information and ID will be checked, and you will be issued passes. You will then be put into groups of 10 cars + and escorted to the airfield. Once at the airfield you will be under the direction of Marshals at all times. They will be wearing High Visibility vests and will direct you to where we wish you to park. Once on base you will be directed and parked as you arrive, there will be no ability to wait for friends or other members of your groups as it would hamper the process and make it extremely difficult for the small numbers of volunteers we have to control everything safely. To that end, if you wish to be parked together or in groups then please arrange to meet somewhere in advance and drive to RAF Brize Norton in convoy, it would also be advisable to arrive early on to avoid the traffic. Once you are parked up the day is yours to enjoy. There will be plenty going on and plenty to see. If you wish to bring chairs etc to sit by your cars feel free. In fact, we encourage this to enable you to chat with interested members of the public. Please make sure you keep hold of all belongings and litter however as a stray item can be very bad news for an aircraft engine.

Please bear in mind the event timings; we cannot cater for display vehicles leaving early because of the large volume of foot traffic expected. We would appreciate sensible behaviour and to keep noise levels to a minimum, so no loud stereos or revving engines please.

We are happy to accommodate photos of you and your vehicles with the aircraft, this is a unique opportunity for a very different kind of backdrop. This will take place at the end of the day, and again, will be under the direction of staff to avoid potential damage to you, your vehicles or our aircraft.

So, this is going to be a fairly special opportunity for those of you with an interest in aviation, particularly of the military and large kind, to spend a day quite literally "in the middle of it". The photo opportunity afterwards sounds too good to miss.

Please note that this will be a "Members Only" event and that full details will be posted in the Members section. Because of the closing date for registration (which I will do as Event Organiser) for access to the base you must be a member of the club on the date you apply, latest 20 July 2021. We are not limited in car numbers, either high or low - there's a lot of parking there!

Any questions to me please by PM or by Chairman@nissansportz.club.
