The Southport Air Show is the number one family day out in the North West. Young or old, there is something for all ages.
From 10am light aircraft come in and land on the beach on the unique purpose built runway on the beach. The Red Arrows will display both days trailing red, white and blue smoke for what is their 50th display season. You can see in action the living and breathing tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in WW2 when the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flies in formation. You will also witness the last two Lancaster bombers flying the world flying together as the Canadian Lancaster joins the flight in a meeting unlikely to ever happen again.
