For the last 5 years the Abingdon Air and Country Fayre has been on the agenda of Bronco Demo Team. The 2015 edition had a fantastic line-up. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, some last-minute cancellations occured, but nevertheless Neil Porter and his team managed to provide the visitors with a great day out.

The Bronco and Skyvan both arrived on Saturday evening being available to the photographers for the usual night photoshoot. The team had a great dinner at the Merry Miller, a local pub.

Airshow day started quite wet, but soon after the gates opened the skies cleared to give space for the flying displays against some – at times - dramatic backgrounds. We were again very happy to meet a great number of our die hard fans who come back year after year. Just after noon, Tony took off in the Bronco for a flying display, soon followed by the Skyvan dropping the Renegates Parachute Team. After the display both aircraft flew to nearby Brize Norton for refueling, to return to Abingdon afterwards before leaving for home.
The flying program itself was shifted around a little due to a torrential downpour in the middle of the program. Some of the highlights were the Meteor NF11, RV8tors, T-6 and the newly formed synchro pair Spitfire-Typhoon. Despite the unfavourable conditions at times, it was a most enjoyable day.
Many thanks to Neil Porter and his fantastic team of volunteers putting the Abingdon show togehter! We would also like to thank the ground crew at RAF Brize Norton for the great service and hospitality.
