Swansea Airshow set to greet Battle of Britain icons

Swansea Air Show

Some of Britain’s most historic wartime aircraft are set to delight crowds at Swansea’s Wales Airshow this summer.

World-famous fighters the Spitfire and Hurricane are to join a Lancaster bomber over Swansea Bay as part of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF).

It’s the third display to be confirmed for the free two-day spectacular due to take place over Swansea bay on July 1 and 2.

In recent weeks it was announced that the Red Arrows and the RAF Typhoon Display Team will be making an appearance on both days of the Airshow.

There’ll also be many other stars of the skies and a wide range of family fun on the ground, including displays, virtual reality experiences and live music.

Council cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies said: “We’re delighted that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will be flying over Swansea again this summer.

“We thank all the Airshow traders and sponsors for their contribution to the show’s ongoing success. It contributes millions of pounds to our local economy.”
