The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which features a Spitfire, a Hurricane and a Lancaster Bomber, will take part in a hugely patriotic display.

Crowds will also be able to see an RAF Typhoon thunder across the horizon; see spectacular aerobatic displays from the Turbulent Team, Wing Walkers and The Blades; and view some of the world’s best aircraft flying over the iconic Blackpool seafront including a Strikemaster, Chipmunk and Swordfish.

The RAF Red Arrows team will bring the show to an unforgettable finale on the second day with another awesome display of speed, agility and precision.
