The British Army are delighted to be involved in the SKYLIVE Airshow 2017. Come along to find out more about the equipment we have on display at the Airshow and meet the Regular and Reserve units in your area.
There will be an array of static military displays, allowing you to interact with serving soldiers and their equipment and find out what amazing jobs both the soldiers and their equipment are used for.
With unit representation from many of the local reserve units in the North East, you’ll have a unique opportunity to get up close to some of the technology used in military training and battlefield situations around the World.
Come along and see some of the military’s combat armoured vehicles that are used as part of an Army Regular and Reserve soldier’s training.
Aside the frontline equipment, you can meet some of the units who help keep the British Army working on a day to day basis – from the Royal Military Police, who will be showcasing some of the equipment used in military policing and the vehicles they use – to the recovery units, who specialise in ensuring that the kit used is maintained and continually developed to keep the British Army at the forefront of Military capability. You can also find out from the men and women in the units about the transferable skills they have gained from a part-time role in the Army Reserve.
Finally, make sure you don’t miss the equipment capability display, to get a flavour of how some of our equipment works in training exercise. You can hear about the times of the displays throughout the day.
