Sir Alan Cobham first brought his National Aviation Day display to Peebles on 9 September 1932. In 1935 his No 2 Tour came again to the town on 25 July. In between times there was a British Hospitals Air Pageant display at Peebles on 16 September 1933.

N.B. - Due to (a) the general lack of records after 1932 and (b) very temporary nature/availability of the land used for these flying events, it is not currently confirmed if subsequent Cobham and/or associated displays occurred at the same location.
