December saw the launch of our first piece of merchandise, the official Southend Airshow & Military Festival Bear!
Designed and supplied by local business Teddy Station, the official bear is decked out in true pilot fashion, including a flying helmet with replica goggles and a brown leatherette flying jacket with sheepskin collar, khaki Shorts and proudly wears the Southend Air show & Military Festival logo on his T Shirt.
He is lacking on thing however, a name!
We are partnering with the Echo to launch the ‘Name the Airshow Bear’ competition! If your suggestion for the Bear is picked you can win a signed bear to take home, a free guided tour of Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome and a fabulous free flight in a Tiger Moth aircraft!
