There was a huge amount of disappointment last year when Skylive was postponed in the wake of the tragic events at Shoreham Airshow. However, fear not; the airshow taking place at Durham Tees Valley airport has been rearranged for 28th May this year. Not only is the airshow returning, but it’s coming back bigger and better than ever. Headlining the event will be none other than the Red Arrows, who will also be available on the ground to greet the public.
Joining the Red Arrows display will be three of the most prestigious RAF shows, including the Falcons parachute display team. The event organisers have been working very hard to make this event one to remember and it is very special to the airport in general. They told Gazette live: “Given the airport’s history as an important air base during World War Two, it is particularly significant that the Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will be taking part.”
With thousands of spectators already set to attend the event and further attractions still to be announced, it looks as if this event is not going to be one to miss! Tickets for 5-15 year olds start at just £5.50 for the entire day, so make sure you have a look at the Skylive website for all the details.
