Bournemouth Airshow History
Bournemouth is a large town and tourist resort, situated on the south coast of England. The Bournemouth Air Festival takes place between Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers and in the Lower Gardens and the number of visitors are anticipated to be in excess of up to 200,000 per day. The FREE four day spectacular is set against the backdrop of Bournemouth's seven miles of award-winning beaches, beautiful bay and glorious gardens.

The first Bournemouth Air Festival was held from 28-31 August 2008, attracting over 750,000 visitors. In 2009, it was held from 20-23 August and attendance almost doubled to an estimated 1,344,000 people.

The Award winning and internationally renowned Airshow have welcomed incredible jets and display teams, had year-on-year increased assets from the RAF and RN (who regard the festival as a key event in their calendar), won the Green Apple environmental award in 2011 and been recognised for Marketing and PR by the European Airshow Council (2010, 2012 and 2014).

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight:
Festival director Jon Weaver confirmed: "We have had confirmation that the BBMF is still unable to display at the Bournemouth Air Festival.

"In preparation that this might happen we have been working behind the scenes to bring festival goers similar World War II aircraft to the show this year from civilian providers.

"So, you will see Spitfires and a Hurricane and, new for this year, the Bristol Blenheim will now display Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday."
