RAF are ready to go!

The Royal Air Force has confirmed which of its aircraft and displays will be performing at this year's Sunderland Airshow.

Taking to the skies over the three day event July (26-28) will be displays from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Typhoon, Tutor and RAF Falcons Parachute display team.

There will also be a range of RAF ground displays and exhibits along the seafront for visitors to enjoy. 

The Leader of Sunderland City Council, Councillor Graeme Miller said: "We are thrilled to be announcing such a strong RAF line-up again this year featuring some returning crowd favourites.

"The RAF are always very supportive of the event and we look forward to welcoming RAF displays to Sunderland this summer, and wish our friends at the Red Arrows good luck on their overseas tour of the United States and Canada which means they are unable to join us this year.

"Over the weeks ahead we’ll also be confirming which other aircraft and display teams will be joining the RAF in the skies above our award winning seafront to excite and entertain the crowds once again."

The full programme of ground displays, events and activities will also be confirmed over the coming weeks.

The RAF programme includes;

Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (Lancaster/Hurricane/Spitfire); Fri, Sat, Sun
Typhoon; Fri, Sat, Sun
Falcons Parachute Display Team; Sat, Sun
Tutor; Sat, Sun
