The Red Arrows have confirmed they will be returning to Eastbourne this summer.

The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, as they are otherwise known, will wow spectators at Airbourne for three whole days from August 17-20.

Last year the Red Arrows only graced Eastbourne skies for two days out of the four day festival of flight.

But this year is the 25th anniversary of the free air show, voted tourism event of the year for 2015/16.

Attracting huge crowds, Eastbourne’s International Airshow boasts a two mile flying display line along the seafront and regularly features the very best in military and civilian aviation display teams including Typhoon and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
