    The spectacular free event will take place on Blackpool Promenade on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 August and will, for the first time, include the Red Arrows on both days.

    The programme will showcase the very best in British aviation with a whole host of amazing flying machines and some of the country’s most talented pilots.

    The programme will begin shortly after 1.30pm on both days, with the best viewing points on the promenade between North and Central Piers.

    The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which features a Spitfire, a Hurricane and a Lancaster Bomber, will take part in a hugely patriotic display. Crowds will also be able to see an RAF Typhoon thunder across the horizon; see spectacular aerobatic displays from Team Twister, the Huey Helicopter and Team Trig as they perform their own versions of aerial ballet with exhilarating sequences of loops and rolls.

    The RAF Red Arrows will conclude the display each day with their own display of aerial control, speed and synergy.

    Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “This year marks the 108th annual Blackpool Air Show and I have absolutely no doubt it will be as grand as ever.

    “The line-up looks superb and it’s fantastic that we have the Red Arrows here performing over two consecutive days. It is an event for the family to enjoy and we hope to encourage more people to come along and stay for the two days and enjoy all that the Air Show and Blackpool has to offer.”

    Visitors are encouraged to arrive in resort early to avoid any queues. To complement the aerial programme, there is also plenty to see and do on the ground before the show starts with a whole range of stalls, stands and concessions including the Red Arrows ground team; the SPAM roadshow; Arnold Clark; Simulator Supplies; 21 Game Stall; Help for Heroes; Friends of the Red Arrows; Royal British Legion; Blackpool Transport; RAFA; Love My Beach and Blood Bikes.

    In addition, there will be a fantastic selection of food and drink concessions including The Nag’s Head serving hot and cold beverages; Shake’n’Smooth for delicious smoothies, shakes and waffles, plus lots more to be announced.

    Blackpool has been wowing the public since 1909 when the town put on the very first official air show in Britain. That was the same year French flyer Louis Bleriot made the first historic crossing of the English Channel.
