Eastbourne International Airshow 2017

WELCOME to the 25th year

WELCOME to the 25th year of Airbourne: Eastbourne International Air Show. E A S T B O U R N E ’ S A I R B O U R N E Another tremendous year is on the cards for you over this iconic four-day event. In store for visitors we have many well-known favourites, from the unbelievable Breitling Wingwalkers to the astonishing Blades display team. A real focal point for this memorable year is the Belgian Air Force F-16. It’s an absolute treat to have the ‘Blizzard’ returning. Among the extraordinary flying line up we have the Chinook returning for another year, the Red Arrows for three days, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with the Lancaster, Hurricane and Spitfire, the Tigers parachute display team and many more. The four-day event doesn’t just stop in the air. Make sure you visit the showground featuring a host of displays and exhibitions, as well as simulators and replica aircraft, along with many more attractions for the whole family. New for this spectacular year we have a very special guest joining us at Airbourne. Welcome Ace the AirBear, who is making his debut appearance over the four-day event. He’s been busy visiting schools to spread the word about Airbourne and will be collecting for this year’s good causes. Every afternoon we have a film being shown on the big screen on the beach, across the four days: Trolls, Paddington, Planes: Fire & Rescue and The Jungle Book will be aired. To end this phenomenal event and send the 25th year off with a bang we have the much adored Fireflies and Twister pyro-aerobatic teams lighting up our skies, followed by an array of fireworks lighting up over Eastbourne for the finale of 2017’s Air Show on Sunday night. My special thanks go to all of our sponsors, to the RAF, British Army and Royal Navy and to the Rotary clubs, and individual collectors for their assistance with our bucket collection. Your contributions will help secure the future of Airbourne, and will help support our very worthy local causes too. Thank you for continuing to support Airbourne, I do hope you thoroughly enjoy the four upcoming days. Councillor Pat Hearn Mayor of Eastbourne 4 EASTBOURNE INTERNATIONAL aIR S HOW 2017

I would like to welcome you to our dedicated Armed Forces exhibition on the Western Lawns. It is a privilege to be invited to this prestigious annual event. This is the 25th Anniversary of this aviation extravaganza celebrating both military and civilian aircraft from the past and present. The coming year will see continued work towards new innovations and cutting edge technology that will no doubt include significant change to the services. This will ultimately transform the way that all three services operate and ensure that we are equipped to deal with the new challenges that undoubtedly lie ahead. We will continue to play an essential role in the security of UK interests, both at home and the wider global environment. On a personal note, I particularly look forward to the fast approaching RAF Centenary on 1st April 2018. I encourage you all to help us commemorate our achievements and all those who have served, celebrate the RAF of today and inspire the future members of the RAF. The Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force welcome you to come along to our various individual exhibition areas. Please engage with our Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen and women about the lifestyle, training and career opportunities, both as regular and reserve positions within the UK Armed Forces.
