No reds this year as I believe they are stateside when show is on.
Bit of a gap to attract the public,lets hope we get a F-16 this year or at least a fly by from a RAF F-35

Hi, do you have a link for this please? Haven't seen this elsewhere.

Am I right in thinking this is a first for Eastbourne and first in a number of years in the UK? :biggrin:

Gazelles and Strikemaster pair confirmed, think I'm going to have to give up my planned second day at Biggin at this rate :hide:

Now the line up is finalized does anyone know what the start time is for Thursday?

Really hope the hotel allows early check in on the Thursday because it says 4pm and think much of the Thursday would be over by then.

Once I know at least Thursdays timings I can call and ask for early check in. Not to bothered about most of Thursday as I'm there for all four days but Breitling Jet Team would be a great display to catch and well breitling are no longer the sponsors after this season and have been since 2003.


Thursday line up:
- Breitling Jet Team
- Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
- Dakota
- Tucano
- The Blades
- Wingwalkers
- Sea Fury T-20
- Strikemaster
- Mustang
- The Tigers

Excellent, cheers! :up:

Sea Fury & Tucano have gone tech.

Re: Eastbourne Airborne 2019

Thu 15 Aug 2019, 5:30 pm

A lovely, albeit a shorter show today due to some slight technical problems, that can't be helped. We also had flares from the Breitling Jet Team at the end of their routine.


Does anyone know what frequencies, are likely to be used for the rest of the show?

Re: Eastbourne Airborne 2019

Did anything fly past Beachy Head?
Is it likely to?

Re: Eastbourne Airborne 2019

Freq 130.675 was in use today.

Re Beachy Head. I was not there today but was listening on the box a few miles away. I certainly heard Beachy mentioned a few times, the Mustang, the Blades post display spring to mind but whether they were close enough for photos I don't know.

Aircraft were pretty far from Beachy today, it might just have been because of high winds, the lower cliffs towards Eastbourne, gave good views today. There was a nice blast of flares as the Breitling jets flew in from the sea, towards the crowd on the finale, a nice photo opportunity for the togs.

The days of nice topsides have sadly gone from Beachy Head i last went in 2017 and it was not a patch on previous years.

Re: Eastbourne Airborne 2019

The BBMF have cancelled again for today.

Didn't get here until half way through the day yesterday, but the Mustang and Wingwalkers looked like they went high over Beachy Head or quite far out. Definitely not what it used to be. Went up on one of the hills between the town and Beachy Head and some nice views of the Wingwalkers displaying in the distance and the Breitling Jet Team came a lot closer, so was quite a nice spot for them.
