The Sunderland Airshow is one of the largest seafront airshows in the UK and the only major airshow in the North East. The airshow sees modern military participation alongside a bevy of classic jets, warbirds and the very best civilian acts from the UK display circuit.

The event starts on the Friday evening with the Launch Party. This includes a small flying display in the evening alongside ground events such as live music and fireworks. The main shows days over the weekend include a full afternoon of flying on both days.
