When: Summer 2016
Where: Locations around the Country

Each year during the summer, there are a number of Air Shows around the country. These are often popular events with many turning out to watch as planes through the ages swoop and corkscrew across the skies.

The Air Shows available from your area may vary according to availability however some of the main shows are:

Duxford Air Shows

Imperial War Museum Duxford hosts a number of Air Shows across the year, the first is the American Air Show on the 28th and 29th May 2016. This will celebrate the newly transformed American Air Museum, showcasing the collaboration of the American and UK Air Forces.

On the weekend of the 9th and 10th July 2016, Duxford will be hosting the Flying Legends Air Show, this will be a unique presentation of historic piston engine aircraft in remarkable flying displays.

On the 10th and 11th September 2016, Duxford will be holding their Meet the Fighters display, this will be in commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the formation of the RAF Fighter Command.

Blackpool Air Show

Another favourite in the North West is the Blackpool Air Show, visitors have the chance to watch modern and classic planes take to the skies along Blackpool’s coastline. Watch the awe-inspiring Wing Walkers as they ride on the wings of some beautiful flying machines. The Red Arrows will also be appearing at this event and will be hoping the sky is clear so they can perform their spectacle of a show. Other planes which will be appearing are Spitfires, Typhoons, Lancaster Bombers and Hurricanes.

Eastbourne Air Show

One of the flagship Air Shows in the South East is the Eastbourne, this annual event attracts crowds along the seafront with displays across the weekend from 11th to 14th August.
