Southport Airshow 2015

Postby eddywinch82 on Fri 26 Dec 2014, 10:45 pm

The Airshow returns to Southport Seafront Lancashire this year, on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th of September :smile:

Unfortunately it clashes with the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain Airshow at Duxford, being held the same weekend, which I was hoping to go to.

BAE Systems Hawk T2 x 2 4(R) Sqn Role Demo
Grob Tutor T1 16(R) Squadron
Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (Avro Lancaster PA474) both days.

I'm not sure if all these Air Display items are flying both days ?

According to the BBMF Official Airshow Schedule only the Avro Lancaster is appearing both days !!?? Whereas http://www.airshows.org.uk Southport Airshow preview says the Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane IIc appearing both days, I hope it's the latter ! Can anyone on this forum confirm which of that info is correct !!?? any info would be appreciated.

I've heard it's just the Lancaster.

As it's a big year for the BBMF I think they're spreading their resources out a bit. Cosford has many fighters as does RIAT so I guess they're sacrificing some some shows. I'm sure we will get some privately owned examples

At Least Barton's (Manchester Airshow) get the full trio L, S +H and Blackpool Airshow all 4 both days, (Dakota, Lancaster Spitfire and Hurricane) so weather permitting, thats something to look forward to for us Northwest England Airshow fans. I think your right Jamie hopefully the Southport Airshow will get some Civilian Warbirds. Likely Peter Teichmans Spitfire XI and Hurribomber and possibly Mustang "Jumping Jacques" , so all is not lost I think. I'm going to do the Duxford BOB Airshow Saturday and Southport Airshow Sunday I think. Thanks for your reply Jamie.

Chances are Peter will bring either the Spitfire or Mustang, in past years the P-40 has been down but has been replaced by one of the two mentioned aircraft.

Something which has definitely been missed from Southport the past couple of years!

Not the Red Arrows, who won't be there for Blackpool Airshow either or any time soon.

And probably not a lot of other acts.

Wondering if we've seen this poster before...

Chances are they'll probably use Liverpool John Lennon, RAF Woodvale and possibly Warton, and I'm guessing that the places the aircraft are will be posted closer to the date.

Are you going to tie up this thread , and probably The Blackpool Airshow thread AGAIN, with "will they fly over my house" type posts like last year ?

I would expect quite a bit more to be added than what's confirmed on there website.

Aircraft Confirmed:

The Red Arrows
The Typhoon
Lancaster Bomber
Tutor
NEW Hawk T2 Role Demo

Considering Southport are running ad's on Granada TV with the airshow being part of the ad I would have thought they could have kept the website up to date.

Lifted off the Southport Air Show facebook page.
Southport Air Show Thank you for your comment. This page is managed on a daily basis and we have a high response rate, however there are times that comments can be missed or it is not possible to reply straight away. The Vulcan has not yet been confirmed, we are awaiting feedback from them and our flying director. As soon as we have news we update this page, as well as southportairshow.com.

So looks like they are trying to get the Vulcan.

Oh and it wasn't me asking.
