Britain’s top aerial display team has been confirmed as part of a bumper line-up for this year’s Clacton Airshow – thought to be the biggest-ever.

Alex Porter, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism at Tendring District Council (TDC), which stages Clacton Airshow, said the 2022 event was truly shaping up to be one of the best.
“We have an incredible line-up for this year’s Clacton Airshow, both in breadth and depth, which after a two-year enforced hiatus due to Covid-19 is exactly what we all need,” Cllr Porter said.
“Headlining the event will be the world-renowned Red Arrows, which are always a huge draw to aviation fans and general public alike – and we hope everyone gives them a warm welcome.”

Other flights revealed to be on the programme include the Pitts Special, an exciting aerobatic display flown in biplanes guaranteed to thrill the crowds on both days with closing speeds approaching 400mph, and the Slingsby T67 Firefly – both firm favourites at the Clacton Airshow.

Once again full commentary will be provided at the event by Radio Airshow from BBC Essex.

Businesses are still able to sponsor the event, with local construction firm Rose Builders already putting their support behind the Airshow.
