Red Arrows set for Blackpool Air Show

The RAF Red Arrows display team is set to perform on both days of the annual Blackpool Air Show, which takes place above the Promenade on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 August.  It’s the first time that the Reds will feature on consecutive days of a Blackpool Air Show.  The RAF Typhoon display team and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are also set for both days of this year’s show.

Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “The Red Arrows are a huge favourite with visitors to the Blackpool Air Show and its truly fantastic news to hear that they will return to Blackpool for two days this year.

“The Air Show is always an important date in our calendar and I’m certain that this year will be no different.  The show brings in tens of thousands of people on to the Promenade and provides a huge boost to our local economy, with those visitors spending money in our shops and restaurants and supporting our jobs.”
