15th-17th September 2017, Southport Seafront, Lancashire

Last updated: August 1, 2017 at 22:12 pm

The Southport Airshow is unique. Taking place over the extensive sands off Southport, it is the only “seaside” airshow where aircraft can land and take off in front of the public. Birkdale Sands has always been associated with aviation and was even a licensed airport at one stage. This is usually the last airshow of the season will full support from the RAF display teams as well as a varied mix of civilian and historic displays.
