The world-renowned Red Arrows will perform on both days at this year’s Weston Air Festival on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June.
The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team will perform a thrilling precision flying display featuring their trademark formations, close-passes and dynamic loops and rolls. To mark the team’s important role as a global ambassador for the United Kingdom and Royal Air Force, the Red Arrows will be sporting a new Union flag inspired tailfin design at this year’s event.
The mighty Avro Vulcan Bomber has also been confirmed as one of the headline displays at this year's Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend taking place on 20 and 21 June, appearing at the festival on the Sunday.
The Avro Vulcan XH558 returned to flight in 2007 following an award-winning restoration programme. As the last airworthy Vulcan, she returned triumphantly to the air display circuit in 2008 and has been a significant crowd puller at every show where she has appeared.
"We are delighted the magnificent Vulcan will be appearing at our Air Festival once again," said Cllr Felicity Baker, North Somerset Council's executive member for tourism. "This iconic aircraft is a huge hit with visitors whenever it flies and is always a firm crowd favourite at Weston."
More spectacular air displays for the festival will soon be revealed. In addition, the Beach Lawns will be packed with military displays, activities and performances over the whole weekend.
As well as a full weekend programme of air displays on Weston seafront, the air show will incorporate the town's Armed Forces celebrations with military exhibitions and displays. Following the flag raising ceremony there will be marching displays, military bands and performances from The Marionettes and the Bristol Military Wives Choir. Along with fun fair rides, trade stands and activities such as mini tanks, a zip-wire and giant inflatables.
