Service personnel, their families and friends enjoyed a fun day of displays and entertainment at the annual Families Day and Brizefest at the weekend.

Throughout the day visitors were entertained with a variety of activities, including displays from the Rockets Children Motorcycle Display Team, the RAF Police Dogs, falconry and medieval fighting.

The Station’s aircraft could be viewed up close, with static displays of the C-17 Globemaster, the Atlas A400M, the Voyager A330 and the C-130J Hercules.

Alongside the aircraft was a huge exhibition of classic and performance cars.

There were also a range of white- and family-friendly pink-knuckle rides on the all-day fairground.

In the evening, musical entertainment was provided by the RAF Brize Norton Military Wives Choir, the Band of the Royal Air Force College, Alex and Jaques, Disco Inferno, 2014 X Factor winner Ben Haenow, and the headliner was Rock for Heroes.

The evening finished in spectacular style with a firework display.

A spokesperson said: "The annual event for the Station is a way of thanking everyone for their support and commitment to RAF Brize Norton. After being cancelled in 2020 due to Covid, the events team vowed to make it bigger and better then years before.

"Thanks must be given to the volunteers from across Station who dedicated their time to providing the best event possible, and we can definitely say this was a fantastic Families Day."
