Airbourne is one of the UK’s largest free airshows. The show is supported well by the Royal Air Force and the other UK armed services. Eastbourne also regularly attracts support from overseas, particularly the Belgian and Dutch air forces. As well as four days of flying displays, there are other events around Eastbourne including concerts and an impressive fireworks display.
