HC Deb 03 March 1930 vol 236 c49W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether the programme and set piece for this year's display by the Royal Air Force has now been finally settled; and can he give particulars?


The programme has now been decided except for details, and follows the general lines of those of previous years. Certain new events are, however, being introduced, which are designed to demonstrate the improvement in equipment and training achieved by the Royal Air Force. New and experimental types of aircraft will also be demonstrated. The set piece, which terminates the display, deals with air action taken to bring the activities of certain pirates to an end. Further details will appear in the Press in due course.
