People travelled from Brighton and beyond to see this years Airbourne

Posted On 21 Aug 2017 at 12:38 am

Once again the organisers of the Eastbourne International Airshow, known as Airbourne, have put on a spectacular four day display of the highest order. The show ran from Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th August and people from Brighton, Sussex and all over the south and beyond attended this annual aeronautical bonanza which featured The RAF Red Arrows, RAF Chinook, Strikemaster, The Blades, Pitts, The Tigers and Breitling Wingwalkers to name but a few.

No doubt hundreds of Brighton residents have their own souvenir photos of the event and so I would like to share a few of mine with you – enjoy and roll on next year!

The Blades highlight that the show was an outstanding success whichever way you look at it


Rick Goodwin Pitts Special was a special highlight for me as his stunts were unbelievable

    Excellent photos. I love the chinook by the dome. I hope Airbourne continues to run and the Battle of Britain flypast can be reinstated for next year.


      Here! Here!

    It was a great airshow. I particularly liked the Typhoon Eurofighter & the F16 Eagle.
    Wonderful photos by the way!


      Thanks very much Stuart 🙂
