Treat for families

AROUND 6,000 people attended this year’s families day at RAF Benson.

The event is to thank the families of personnel who either live at the base or nearby.

The attractions included an air show featuring the Red Arrows, the Blades aerobatic display team, the RAF Falcons parachute display team, a Chinook helicopter and Merlin and Puma helicopters, which are based at Benson.

Static aircraft from across the 75 years of the base were on display, including a Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

There were also free children’s activities including go-karts and slides.
