It is hoped that at least 50 Gazelle helicopters will be present at the event in order to mark the anniversary in style.
On 7 April 1967, Aerospatiale SA.340 F-WOFH made its first flight in the hands of famed test pilot Jean Boulet. Five decades later, the Aerospatiale Gazelle remains a valued asset to the armed forces of twenty nations worldwide.
The Gazelle 50th Anniversary Commemorative Fly-in will open to the public from 10am, with free parking available in the field to the west of the A343 opposite the Museum of Army Flying available from 9am.
Signage and traffic management will be in operation to ensure that visitors can park quickly and safely. Disabled parking will be in the Museum of Army Flying Car Park.
A number of aviation, craft and charity stands, as well as helicopters on static display, will be present in addition to the aircraft flying in.
