Southport Airshow History
The first Southport Airshow was an annual event held in Southport, Merseyside, England, since 1991. The airshow takes place over two days, usually in September, and attracts around 150,000 spectators making it the North West's largest Airshow.

The flying programme includes a good mixture of military and civilian aircraft, classic jets, warbirds, helicopters, aerobatics and parachute displays. The show features a whole host of trade stands, interactive and educational displays, simulators, military vehicles, assault courses, bungee trampolines, and children's activities.

At the start of the day you can see aircraft landing on the beach on the purpose built runway, a spectacle unique to Southport Air Show. You can get up close to them and the microlights as they park on the beach for the show.
