2018 Events

The Gazelle Squadron Display team has been a regular on the UK airshow scene since early 2014. We have supported airshows across England with static displays, and 2016 saw us performing our first season as a 2 ship flying display.

2018 sees us with ambitious plans and we are continuing to work hard on aircraft and crew training with the intention of making a big impression on this year's UK airshow circuit.

In the first few months of 2018 this page will be populated with our show calendar.

In addition to the events listed below we also attend and support many private events, charity events and smaller shows which do not feature on this page. At the time of publishing we are awaiting confirmation from some show organisers - these are annotated as TBC.
