Group Captain Darryn Webb says it's a great way to demonstrate the roles and capabilities of the Air Force.
"The theme of the issue is 'yesterday, today and tomorrow' and so we've got the full range of World War I fighter aircraft.
"There's a mock attack between a German and a British aircraft, right through to what we call the 'heavy metal' aeroplanes of World War II so the Spitfire, the Mustang."
Mr Webb says the event will be the biggest of its kind in twenty years
