Guernsey Air Display to take place on 13th June 2024
The Guernsey Air Display has been brought forward to the 13th June 2024 instead of its usual September slot. This is because the popular Red Arrows are expected to go on an overseas tour from mid-July until late September. Although unconfirmed the Red Arrows are believed to be heading to North America and may be taking part in the Royal Canadian Air Force 100th Anniversary.
Natalie Davidson, the Guernsey Air Display organiser, said that because of the "key" role the Red Arrows play in the event, moving it forward was "a pretty easy decision to make".
"The Red Arrows will celebrate their 60th display season and with a June date, we will be one of the first displays to see the 2024 flying sequence, which changes every year," she continued.
The Guernsey Air Display Facebook page included the following statement:
"Mark your calendars - the 2024 Guernsey Air Display date has been set for Thursday 13th June!"
"The Red Arrows are touring next year from mid-July to September and are unavailable for our usual date, so the decision has been made to bring the date forward so they can still be part of the display. We've put our application in to the RAF Events Team for 13th June and we should have confirmation in the spring."
