GUESTS attending the First World War Centenary Charity Ball being held at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford a week on Saturday will be treated to a close formation flypast from two Eurocopter AS350BB helicopters.
This formal evening event is being held on Saturday, August 30 and is packed with entertainment and indulgencies throughout. Following a champagne reception within the Museum's National Cold War Exhibition, attendees will be wowed by a helicopter flypast. Eurocopters are used by air forces around the world and are operational with the Royal Air Force in the UK, based at RAF Shawbury, near Shrewsbury.
Adding a touch of formality to proceedings will be a military sunset ceremony with buglers and an RAF Cosford honour guard. A piper will then escort the guests into the museum's war planes hangar for a fine dining experience, surrounded by an historic aircraft collection.
Guests can sit back and enjoy a gourmet four-course dinner accompanied by a selection of fine wines, before being entertained with live musical performances throughout the evening.
Other highlights will be the RAF 'Shades of Blue' Swing Band, a prize auction and a grand raffle.
