Seething Airfield has a long history of air shows with Waveney Flying Group's first public open day and air display in 1961. The following years saw this "Air Rally" become a regular event with displays of aircraft from local clubs such as McCauleys and Felthorpe (both still in existence today) joining with other historical aircraft.


Following a gap of a few years when no air shows were staged the Charity Air Days which we are now familiar with began. These not only raised funds for local and national charities but also provided local charitable organisations to a platform on which to promote their cause. The Seething Airfield Charity Airday has now grown and become a popular event raising thousands of pounds each year for good causes.

Each year the airfield stages a number of fly ins inviting aircraft from other local airfields, and those from further afield, to gather for a relaxing day out. Many of the events coincide with the Control Tower Museum's open days so helping to promote the great work it does in preserving the memory of this historical place.


Important: On these days visitors by road have restricted access to the airfield and members of the public cannot pass beyond the perimeter track gate to the club house side of the airfield without prior permission and an escort.


This is a safety precaution as access to the clubhouse and hangars crosses an active runway.
