The Southport Seafront Air Show is recognised as the North West's largest Airshow. The 2017 Southport Air Show was a fantastic event and included the first ever Friday Night Launch Night which was spectacular with lights and pyros on planes and a huge firework FINALE!
Combining a spectacular air display with a host of ground activities, the Southport Airshow is an exhilarating and fun-filled experience that the whole family can enjoy.
The event promises to be one of the aviation calendar's most spectacular events, providing stunning views of the best jets, fighters, bombers, helicopters and aerobatic aircraft.
Southport Airshow 2018:

Friday Night Flying:
Begin your Air Show experience in style with the Friday Night Launch Event.
An air display with a difference! Each display will fly to music giving it a really different feel to the rest of the displays over the weekend. Some aircraft will have LED lights and even pyrotechnics attached to them - with the beautiful backdrop of the Southport coastline, these displays will light up the skies.
Explore the event site and you will find plenty to eat and drink, flight simulators, military services, armoured vehicles and plenty more to keep the kids entertained in between the flying displays.
And if that isn't enough the evening ends with a grand firework finale by previous British Musical Fireworks Champions, Sirotechnics Fireworks.
Tickets are from only £6.50 in advance and children under 5 are FREE.
