Thousands of people flocked to Eastbourne to be wowed by spectacular displays at this year’s Airbourne.

Sadly yesterday’s show (Sunday) was hampered by poor weather conditions, which meant it was simply not safe for many aircraft to fly – but despite this the show went on and the festival went out with a bang with a fireworks finale that evening.

Reflecting on the event, the air show said online, “An event like Airbourne doesn’t just happen and some of the greatest unsung heroes of Airbourne are the fantastic team keeping Eastbourne clean whilst hundreds of thousands of people enjoy the show! A massive THANK YOU to you all.”
