Since 2011 Bournemouth Air Festival has raised an estimated £100,000 for the Air Festival charities – it’s a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has bought a souvenir brochure, joined the Patrons Club or supported us by wearing a charity wristband, we couldn’t have done it without you!

This year’s military nominated Air Festival charities are three exceptional charities – Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC), ABF The Soldiers Charity and the Jon Egging Trust.

This year there are more than 15 display teams and 40 aircraft supported by more than 55 ground crew! This includes the world-famous Red Arrows, The Blades Super Aerobatics and RAF Typhoon alongside this year’s new additions the Swiss Super Puma Display Team, Mitchell B-25, StrikeMaster, Great War Display Team and Otto the helicopter.

Swiss Air Force Super Puma Display Pilot Captain Matthieu Ghiringhelli said; “On behalf of the Swiss Air Force I am delighted we will be participating at this summer’s Bournemouth Air Festival – we have heard great things about the event on the air show circuit. I hope visitors will enjoy watching the incredible agility demonstrated by the Super Puma Display Team – see you soon!
