The Pleasure Beach has a firework display scheduled for Saturday evening, if anyone stopping over and is interested.

The current news from Blackpool Airport is that they expect most acts including Red Arrows, Typhoon and BBMF to be based at Blackpool Airport for the weekend. DSTM.

The BBMF were based at Blackpool this weekend so looking like they definitely will.

Not a bad day at all at Blackpool, just home after a nice ride using the a roads back.

Good to see the Pitts added to the display but unfortunately the Chipmunk didn't fly.

Fantastic Free Airshow at Blackpool today, even with the no shows. What happened to the Strikemasters and Chipmunk ? Was worth going, just to see the BBMF Lancaster and Spitfire VB AB910. Emotion stirring display, especially when they were in formation. First Lancaster display, I have seen this season.

And the first at Blackpool Airshow since 2013, beautiful sight and sound spine tingling stuff I was. The Red Arrows display to close the show, was excellent. And nice to see an unrestricted display, over the sea. Also pleased to see The Blades, and the Bulldog, I can't wait until tomorrows Airshow !

My only complaint, is that the gaps between displays, were rather long sometimes. That may have down to the wind strength though ? But excellent weather otherwise, well done to the organizers, for a fantastic free Airshow. And the BBMF have made my day ! :biggrin: :biggrin:

It was a great show overall, The Blades knocked it out of the park, really good to see them at Blackpool, Red Arrows were great as always. I think my favourite was the BBMF, I couldn't believe how many passes they did, they just kept coming back for more.

My only complaint was the Typhoon seemed very far out and very little use of Afterburner, #BringtheNoise2017? Not so much today, other than that it was really well done.
