RAF Odiham Families Day

RAF Odiham will hold its annual Families Day on Thursday 25 July 2019.  This day is an opportunity for the Station to thank those who stand so steadfastly behind the Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen and Airwomen from RAF Odiham when their loved ones are deployed on combat operations overseas.  On this day, the local community will notice a significant increase in aircraft activity, with Chinook helicopters flying wide circuits from the airfield all morning and aircraft performing displays in the afternoon; I would particularly ask those with horses and livestock to note that this will include fast jet activity.
