Airshow organiser Paul Layzell said: “The Old Buck Air Show has been going since 1999 and has earned the reputation as one of the best aviation events in the region. 2008 is the 90th Anniversary of the RAF, so we're aiming to do it again better than ever and once again we'll be supporting Each to help them support families caring for children with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses.

“Air shows are expensive to stage so we depend partly on our sponsors to make the day a success and to raise enough funds to make a sizeable contribution to Each. To this end we are offering a range of attractive sponsorship packages to local businesses to promote their products and services to thousands of locally based customers. They include free tickets, promotional opportunities, advertising and we'll gear them to clients needs.”
