Regarded as the UKs most successful civilian air show with brilliant day and night time entertainment in the skies, on land and in the evening, the 11th Air Festival is ’more than just an airshow’. And the world renowned festival is proud to announce that this year, the world-famous Breitling Jet Team take to the UK skies for the first time in 15 years.

Hailing from France, the ‘manifique’ Breitling Jet Team perform jaw-dropping displays in seven Czech Aero L-39 Albatros jets. With the pride of Britain, the Red Arrows, also taking to the skies, which team will the audience prefer?

Headed up by Jacques Bothelin, the team will be displaying on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a special night air show scheduled for Saturday evening.

Jacques said: “On behalf of the Breitling Jet Team we cannot wait to display in Bournemouth this summer.  We have heard about the festival within the airshow world and are delighted that we will be demonstrating our skill, precision and unique aviation skill for you all – see you soon!”

Their three-day displays and one Night Air dusk show are ably supported by Morgan Sindall Investments Limited and Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure.

Jon Weaver Air Festival Director said: “It’s great news! It’s a first for the resort, the event and the jet team.  They haven’t displayed at a UK civilian air show for nearly 15 years show and, after eight years of trying to secure them, we are really excited to welcome them to Bournemouth – this really sets the tone of the strong line-up we have this year!”
