30th August – 2nd September 2018, Bournemouth Seafront, Dorset

Last updated: February 9, 2018 at 12:31 pm

One airshow that’s taken the airshow circuit by storm is the Bournemouth Air Festival. 2014 saw crowds of over 1.3 million along the beaches. The cliff provide a superb vantage point to watch the flying from with many displays at eye-level or below! The RAF, Royal Navy and civilian displays take place over four days. Away from the flying, they’ll be ground entertainment featuring fireworks, marching bands and more from 10am-10pm (5pm on Sunday).
