The More Bus Bournemouth Air Festival

This FREE four day spectacular is set against the back drop of Bournemouth’s seven miles of award-winning beaches and glorious Gardens

Last year the inaugural Bournemouth Air Festival was attended by over 750,000 local residents and visitors who watched the displays along 7-miles of Bournemouth beach. The largest event of its kind, not only in the town’s history but in the country, it is without a doubt a festival not to be missed. 2009 promises to bring even more aviation thrills, breathtaking displays, awesome jets and superb family fun… so buckle up and get ready for a holiday bonanza!

Taking place on 20th – 23rd August 2009, between Bournemouth and Boscombe Piers, festival-goers can expect to see the world-famous Red Arrows, the Sea Vixen vintage jet, heart-stopping Black Cats Helicopter Display, the iconic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and adrenaline pumping Eurofighter Typhoon. Not forgetting that in 2009 The Royal Navy will be celebrating 100 years of Naval Aviation so there will no doubt be some incredible activity and action.
