Guernsey Air Display 2012

Guernsey has staged an annual Air Display since the later 1960s, when the skies above St Peter Port are filled with aircraft both old and new.

The 2012 Guernsey Air Display took on Thursday 13 September from 11am to 1.15pm. This hugely popular Air Display, free to all who want to watch it, started with the emotive sight of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, comprising the Spitfire, the Hurricane and the Lancaster, concluded with the Red Arrows and the gravity defying and split second timed display.

The Friends of the Guernsey Air Display has been set up to help fund the costs to stage the annual Display that was originally held to remember the selfless courage of the Battle of Britain. The majority of the costs are funded by the continued support of the Air Display Consortium; a group of local businesses and the States of Guernsey.

The Air Display, however, needs additional funds to produce the standard of Air Display that Guernsey has been privileged to enjoy over the years.The cost to become a Friend of the Guernsey Air Display is just £10 per person.

Membership includes a Guernsey Air Display pin badge, your name on the Friends Of page in the official souvenir programme and the opportunity to win one of three pairs of VIP tickets to view the Air Display from the lunchtime reception at Castle Cornet – the best viewing point in the island.To download an application form to become a Friend of the Guernsey Air Display 2012 please click on ‘Friends of the Guernsey Air Display’ in the ‘Latest Information’ bar on the What’s On Page.
