Duxford Air Shows
Imperial War Museum Duxford hosts a number of Air Shows across the year. In September there will be a Battle of Britain Air Show, going back to 1940 when Duxford defended Great Britain from aerial attacks during the Second World War.
In July, Duxford will be hosting the Flying Legends Air Show, this will be a unique presentation of historic piston engine aircraft in remarkable flying displays.
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.
