Kendrew barracks (Cottesmore) open day?

Post by jamesg23 » Sat May 07, 2016 7:50 pm

I briefly saw some posters up in Stamford that I thought said there's an open day at kendrew barracks. I'm sure on the poster it said the red arrows and bbmf will be there. Does anyone have any info? Thought this might be of interest to some.

Don't expect too much, fly-throughs only so I'm told. But should be a good day out.

They would have fire cover troubles and so on for full displays to take place I assume.
