The iconic fighter plane will perform a flypast as part of the town’s action-packed tribute to service men and women past, present and future.
Armed Forces Day, organised annually in the town centre from 10am to 2pm, will include military demonstrations, static displays, and military vehicles.
A parade through town will see hundreds of current service personnel, cadets, and veterans line up with civic leaders and others at 10.45am in the Market Place for a procession led by the band of the 1460 (Banbury) Air Training Corps.
The parade will start at 11am and march up Parson’s Street, through Horsefair and down High Street for a salute taken by town mayor John Colegrave and Oxfordshire’s deputy Lord Lieutenant and High Steward of Banbury Sir Tony Baldry.
A drumhead service in the Market Place will take place after the procession. It will demonstrate how troops hold religious services in the battlefield using drums as makeshift altars. The service will be conducted by Padre Charles Lewis, chaplain to the Thames Valley ATC.
There will be bomb disposal presentations, a sea cadet boat, and opportunities to examine and explore an array of military vehicles.
“Armed Forces Day in Banbury is a spectacular event that shows the town’s affinity with service men and women. This year will be another very special day and the flypast will be a highlight of the event.”
“Armed Forces Day is a chance for the town to show support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community – from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets.”
The Spitfire visit is being arranged by Flight Lieutenant Karl Kisley of Banbury’s Air Training Corps.
