The Blades

World-class aerobatic team The Blades will be performing for the first time as part of the 2014 Bournemouth Air Festival Night Air dusk display.  Alongside O’Briens Flying Circus with a Solo Twister, Rolls Royce Spitfire and The Red Devils Parachute Team, The Blades will be performing two very special sunset displays, as part of the extended Night Air programme, on Friday and Saturday night.

A firm favourite the dusk displays started in 2010, Mark Cutmore, Blades Team Leader and Blade 1 said; “We are thrilled to be invited back to Bournemouth and given the opportunity to perform in the Night Air dusk displays.  It has been amazing to watch the event grow each year and even better to be part of it!”

In addition to the beautiful sunset displays, The Blades will also be performing Sunday afternoon, so plenty of opportunity to see these festival favourites take to the skies of Bournemouth.

The Night Air programme, sponsored by Corona, features three nights of incredible entertainment until 10pm with live music, Royal Navy and Royal Marine action on the East Overcliff, street entertainers in the Lower Gardens, music in the Bandstand and fireworks. TheWave105 stage at Boscombe Pier will be back hosting a line-up of incredible music including Rizzle Kicks, Rixton, Loveable Rogues, Alexa Goddard and Sigma on Friday night and Tony Hadley, Sophie Ellis Bextor, The Struts, Jack Savoretti and Nell Bryden on Saturday night.

Finishing the Night Air entertainment will be the famous firework displays on Thursday and Friday and beach pyrotechnics, after the dusk displays, on Friday and Saturday.
