Upcoming Events: Jersey International Air Display

Jersey International Air Display13th September 2012
High above St. Aubin’s Bay

One of Jersey’s most popular annual events, the International Air Display attracts thousands of locals and visitors year after year, and is one of Britain’s biggest air shows.

The air display is organised by Jersey International Air Display A.R.L. on behalf of the Royal Air Force Association (Jersey) Branch, and is a completely free event with collections benefiting and raising the profiles of various military charities.

Air Display

Taking place throughout a September afternoon every year, the display livens up the skies high over St. Aubin’s Bay on the the south of the island. The sweep of the bay creates a beautiful backdrop for an exciting showcase of aircraft old and new, including World War legends the RAF Spitfire and RAF Lancaster, military jets from around Europe, and the ever-impressive RAF Red Arrows, painting the Jersey sky with red, white and blue.
