Blackpool Air show August 2013

The fabulous free event, which takes place over the famous Blackpool promenade between North and Central piers in the resort, will begin just after 2pm on Sunday 11 with a Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster taking to the skies for the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Blackpool Air Show goes back years and has delighted local residents, holiday makers and day trippers alike. The first major airshow was held at Blackpool Airport in 1909 when 2000 spectators watched the most primitive planes perform their routine. Its been an annual event for many years, and another great annual show from Blackpool.
