2016 – latest news
*STOP PRESS* Swiss Air Force have confirmed they will be participating at this year’s Air Festival with the Super Puma Display Team! It’s an incredible first for the festival and we’re absolutely thrilled to be welcoming the team to Bournemouth this summer. They are only displaying at Fairford and Bournemouth this year, it’s great to have confirmation and allocation so early in the planning stages and can’t wait to see them in the skies!
Unfortunately the F-18 can no longer display and has had to pull out of their Bournemouth performances.

See you August 18th – 21st!
Bournemouth Air Festival 2016 – Buckle Up!
As the only summer destination for the UK’s best aviation entertainment Bournemouth will again be hosting incredible air displays, on the ground action and evening entertainment at the 9th Bournemouth Air Festival!
Taking place from 18 – 21 August the award-winning festival welcomes the awesome Red Arrows (on all 4 days), *alongside the mighty RAF Typhoon, Royal Navy Black Cats Helicopter Display Team, Tigers Parachute Display Team, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and, new for this year, the Swiss Air Force Super Puma Team. Supported with a flotilla of Royal Navy ships, Pier-to-Pier and county show trading stalls the festival is not to be missed.
The famous amphibious Royal Navy and Royal Marine beach assault demonstrations, with beach front Royal Navy Village, and interactive RAF Village area, at Pier Approach, will both be returning.
Setting Bournemouth aside from other air shows, when the sun goes down, Night Air entertainment will light up the skies of the UK’s leading coastal resort with pyrotechnic night flying, street entertainment, awesome live music and military performances.
A free to attend event, the Bournemouth Air Festival is so much more than an air show!
