We are excited to announce new aircraft displays as part of this year’s Southport Air Show.

Taking place on 15 - 17 September 2017, the annual spectacle will see debut displays from the de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen and B-17 Flying Fortress G-BEDF Sally B.
The Sea Vixen is a twin boom, twin-engine 1950s–60s British two-seat jet fighter and her appearance at the show is causing quite a stir amongst the organisers!

Sally B is the last remaining airworthy B-17 in Europe. She was critical to the USAAF daylight precision bombing campaign and was armed with 13 machine guns, hence the name 'Flying Fortress'.

Aircraft confirmed:

  • RAF Typhoon Display Team - Sat/ Sun
  • Sally B - Sat/ Sun
  • Sea Vixen - Sat/ Sun
  • Tutor - Sat/ Sun
  • Battle of Britain Memorial Flight - Fri/ Sat/ Sun
  • Breitling Wingwalkers - Sat/ Sun
  • Blades Aerobatic Team - Fri/ Sat/ Sun
  • Twister Aerobatic Team - Fri/ Sat/ Sun
  • Fireflies Display Team - Fri/ Sat/ Sun
  • Tigers Freefall Team - Fri/ Sat/ Sun

The Friday night will showcase lights and pyrotechnics on the displays from the Fireflies Display Team, Twister Aerobatic Team and the Tigers Freefall Parachute Display Team - all three displays will also be on Saturday and Sunday.

More aircraft displays will be announced over the coming weeks adding to an already bumper line-up.
