0 comment

The free two-day Blackpool Air Show takes place this weekend, on Saturday 12th  & Sunday 13th  August. It will proudly feature thrilling displays from a wide range of military and civil aircraft including the Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Typhoon, The Red Devils, Muscle Pitts Stunt Plane, Strikemaster and the AeroSuperBatics Wingwalkers.

Additionally, the RAF has announced it will be bringing a life-size replica of the iconic Red Arrow Hawk Jet Aerobatic Plane to the Air Show Village throughout the free event. The RAF will give visitors a unique opportunity to climb into the cockpit and get a taste of what it is like to be a pilot of one of the most recognisable planes on the planet. The Air Show Village, which will be sited between North and Central Piers, will also include military vehicles, weapon stands, attractions, and information and official merchandise stalls for various aircraft that will be performing over the weekend.

Here is the timetable for both days – with some notes sharing details of the aircraft.
