Cold War Jets Fast Taxi Day

Event Date: 26th May
Location: Airfield

Bruntingthorpe Aviation strives to maintain the Cold War Jets Collection in fully serviceable order. Although retired from active duty, many of the jets remain in fully working order and therefore, twice a year, we open our doors for visitors to experience a truly unique event.

The gates to the site open at 09:00 with the first taxi often planned for approximately 11:00.

We charge a fee of £20 for adults, and £15 for concessions, including pensioners and those with disabilities, and children under 16 are welcome free of charge when accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available on the gate so please ensure you arrive in plenty of time.

The Bruntingthorpe site has ample parking for the event, however, during busy periods fly-ins are not always possible. Please call us to check before confirming journey plans.

Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the current home of C Walton Limited, Manheim Auctions, Big Thunder Events, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, featuring the iconic Cold War Jets Collection as well as a number of other automotive businesses. All situated within the 670-acre site, there is something to meet the needs of each of our customers. Our wide range of facilities allow us to cater for any type of event, from the standard to the obscure, and thanks to our 3.2km straight, Bruntingthorpe still operates as an active airfield.
