Few events can rival the intensity, drama and spectacle on offer at the Royal Navy’s premier air show. The Air Day, one of the Southwest’s largest one day events, will return this summer with an action-packed day out for all the family. Alongside the thrilling flying display there’s plenty to see and do on the ground – so whether you’re a wide-eyed first timer or a seasoned air show veteran, the experience will be incredible.
With the event regularly attracting over 30,000 visitors, significant UK and foreign military participation and support from the world’s leading aerospace companies, Air Day continues to build on its success. Last years show was awarded Silver at the South West Tourism Excellence Awards in the ‘Event of the Year’ category.
Air Day 2012 will be commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Falklands Campaign with a thrilling flying and static display of fast jets, helicopters, historic warbirds, classic jets and formation aerobatic teams. The event will culminate with the traditional Commando Assault demonstration with plenty of aircraft, troops and pyrotechnics!
Acts confirmed so far are the Royal Navy Historic Flight, Royal Navy Black Cats, RAF Red Arrows, RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Army Air Corps Apache, and the Vulcan - subject to a successful fundraising campaign. Foreign participation will be announced in due course.
Throughout the day there will be plenty of entertainment on the ground for all the family including side shows, funfair, vintage, classic and military vehicles, service demonstrations, military bands, picnic areas, helicopter pleasure flights, simulator rides, trade stands and much, much more.
