Red Arrows to spearhead Air Display


The Battle of Britain Air Display has been given the go ahead for September, with the Red Arrows all set to return to the skies over the Bailiwick.

After months of uncertainty and work behind the scenes, organisers of the display have confirmed the event will be taking place on 10 September.

The Red Arrows and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight with the Dakota and two Spitfires have also officially confirmed their participation this week.

The organisers said this year’s display is more significant than usual, as it marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain as well as Guernsey’s recovery after lockdown.

“We have a lot of work to do in the next six weeks," said Barry Neal, Flying Display Director. "We will need to do a few things a little differently this year as all the aircraft are just flying in for the display, but we are so delighted that we can confirm the Air Display will take place; it’s all starting to come together."

Event Consultant Natalie Davidson said funding for the event relies almost entirely on corporate sponsorship and individual Friends of the Air Display.

“The Air Display is a very popular event for all ages and is free for everyone to enjoy; we hope that we can put on a wonderful show this year for the whole Guernsey community.”
