The Essex resort of Clacton holds an annual airshow every August on the Thursday and Friday before August Bank Holiday. The show may not be as large as some of the other major seafront airshows, but it does offer some unique vantages to watch the flying. The Pier allows some superb viewing of the displays which regularly includes military, historic and civilian displays.
