Attractions on the ground...

At Airbourne this year we are proud to welcome the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army and the Royal Air Force all of which were represented over the Airbourne weekend.

Visitors can meet the Recruiting Teams to get some career advice and ask questions, take on the Royal Marines Commando Challenge and see how long it takes to lift the power bags around the course. The Army also have an inflatable assault course for you to test out your fitness and agility along with a Gazelle helicopter on display and flight simulator.
