One of the world’s top aerial display teams will fly at this summer’s Clacton Airshow, in the first of several flight announcements for the event.
The RAF Red Arrows will perform at both days of the 30th Clacton Airshow, taking place on 24-25 August this summer.
The distinctive Hawk fast-jet team is the first flight announcement for what is shaping up to be a stellar Airshow.
Ivan Henderson, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, Regeneration and Tourism at Tendring District Council (TDC), which stages Clacton Airshow, said the 2023 event would be worthy of the landmark anniversary.
“The Red Arrows are such an Airshow favourite, so I am delighted to announce their aerial displays will wow the crowds at this year’s event,” Cllr Henderson said.
“They are a huge draw, for both the general public an aviation fans, and so if you’ve not yet put this year’s Clacton Airshow in your calendar then do it now and start making your plans to visit the Essex Sunshine Coast.”
Other flights scheduled for the landmark birthday Airshow will be revealed in the coming weeks, and for updates and more information people should visit www.clactonairshow.com.
Once again full commentary will be provided at the event by Radio Airshow from BBC Essex.
