2014 GUERNSEY AIR DISPLAY – WATCH THE MEN IN THEIR MAGNIFICENT FLYING MACHINES
This year’s Guernsey Air Display will be held on Thursday 11th September 2014 from 11am to 1.15pm in the skies above St. Peter Port, Guernsey.
Confirmed participants include the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (BBMF) comprising the Lancaster, the Hurricane and the Spitfire; the aerobatic skills of the RV8tors and The Blades and the historic Seafire and T28 Fennec. The Jet Provost and the military training and light attack version of the aircraft, the BAC167 Strikemaster, will be flying together to mark the 60th anniversary of the Jet Provost. The Breitling Wing Walkers will once again be returning to the skies above St. Peter Port in their brightly coloured Boeing Stearmen aircraft and the Red Arrows will provide the annual finale with their speed and precision formation flying. Also new this year will be the Wildcats Aerobatics Formation Display Team, and Rich Goodwin in his Pitts S2S, in a heart-stopping aerobatic display.
“The Guernsey Air Display has been and will continue to be the pivotal event of RAFA Guernsey’s Battle of Britain Week of events. Every year is a special year for the Guernsey Air Display as all funds raised are donated to RAFA who do so much to support ex and serving airmen, women and their families. Next year will see the 75th anniversary of the actual Battle of Britain and it is vital the selfless courage and bravery of the pilots continues to be commemorated and remembered.” Michael Perrett, Guardian of The Guernsey Air Display Foundation
