The 2014 event
Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Day took place on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 June on Weston seafront and has been hailed a success.
Not only was it a fantastic opportunity to see some wonderful displays but also a chance for people to acknowledge the wonderful work our armed forces do. There's been some great feedback saying how much people enjoyed the two day festival and we are already looking at dates for next year.

Many thanks to our sponsors for supporting this years event:
o Bristol Airport
o Heart Radio
o Agilisys
o Weston College
o Weston-super-Mare Town Council
o Town Centre Partnership/BID

Here's what happened at the 2014 event....
The world-renowned Royal Air Force aerobatic team, The Red Arrows, performed thrilling precision flying displays, featuring their trademark formations, close-passes and dynamic loops and rolls. To mark their 50th display season, the Red Arrows were sporting a striking new tailfin design at the event.
The mighty Avro Vulcan bomber flew on the Sunday. The XH558 returned to flight in 2007 and is the last airworthy Vulcan, and has proved to be a significant crowd puller wherever she appears.

As well as a full weekend programme of air displays, the town's Armed Forces Day celebrations took place on the Saturday with military exhibitions, displays and a freedom march, organised by Weston Town Council.

Following the flag raising ceremony there were marching displays, military bands, and the Sealed Knot Black Powder Display by Sir Henry Tillier's Regiment of Foot. There was also the 'granting of honorary freedom of the town' to 40 Commando, Royal Marines. The freedom of the town march took place first at 11an in the Princess Royal Square, followed by the flag raising ceremony before Armed Forces Day activities began.

Both days were action-packed with fun for all the family, featuring arena displays, fun fair rides, trade stands and a variety of activities and refreshments.

Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer at Bristol Airport, said: "We are delighted to support this year's Weston Air Festival. Both Bristol Airport and Weston have strong historical connections with the RAF, so we are particularly pleased to be sponsoring the Tucano display which will be a highlight of Saturday's line up. As well as celebrating the West of England’s strong aviation links, events like the Air Festival bring thousands of visitors to the area and help to raise its profile on the tourism map."

Cliff Graham, regional director of Agilisys, sponsoring the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, said: "Agilisys is proud to support the 2014 Weston Air Show and the Armed Forces event in North Somerset.

"Wherever we work, we make it a priority to be an active part of our clients' communities, helping to engage with local citizens and foster opportunities through job creation, apprenticeships, volunteer and charitable programmes and entrepreneurial advice. We are committed to helping North Somerset Council make real improvements to the way residents access services."
