The 2017 Southport Air Show is set to be as spectacular as ever

The skies over Southport are set to thunder with the roar of jet engines, the thrum of propellers and the majesty of amazing flying machines for the 2017 Air Show.

Three days of awe inspiring, jaw dropping displays begin with a special Friday Launch event.

The main Air Show takes place on Saturday and Sunday, September 16/17, but on Friday, September 15, the skies will be lit up with displays from the The Blades, Fireflies Display Team, Tigers Free Fall Team and even the amazing Eurofighter Typhoon.

There will be pyros and LED lights on planes, as well as a firework finale on the beach to end the special evening, making way for two adrenaline-packed days of aviation action.

As well as numerous flying displays throughout the weekend, there will be a host of fun filled activities taking place on the ground including military tanks, a diving tank, a replica Typhoon and the return of the much loved beach explosions!

Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Labour Cabinet Member Regeneration and Skills, said: “The 26th Southport Air Show is, as ever, shaping up to be a fantastic three day event for all the family and I can’t wait to see the huge crowds across the weekend.

“Sefton Council continues to offer a fantastic events programme which caters for all the family and improves year on year.

“With the return of the Friday night flying displays, this promises to be an exciting weekend for the Southport Air Show and the whole of the borough.

“If you are planning to attend one of the three days, please get there early and make the most of your visit to Southport.”

Discounted tickets for each day of the Air Show are available to buy in advance and start at just £6.50 (including all fees).
