Blackpool Air Show

In association with Northern.

Blackpool’s breath-taking Air Show is back for 2018 and looks set to be better than ever!

 
The programme will showcase the very best in British aviation with a whole host of amazing flying machines and some of the country’s most talented pilots.


The best viewing points on the promenade between North and Central Piers.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which features a Spitfire, a Hurricane and a Lancaster Bomber, will take part in a hugely patriotic display. Crowds will also be able to see an RAF Typhoon thunder across the horizon; see spectacular aerobatic displays from the Turbulent Team, Wing Walkers and The Blades; and view some of the world’s best aircraft flying over the iconic Blackpool seafront including a Strikemaster, Chipmunk and Swordfish.

The RAF Red Arrows team will bring the show to an unforgettable finale on the second day with another awesome display of speed, agility and precision. The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team is performing to millions of people during an important year of commemoration and celebration. The Red Arrows’ 54th season is also the RAF’s 100th anniversary, and they'll be performing a magnificent display in Blackpool on Sunday, 12th August.
