World-famous RAF team The Red Arrows are set the thrill crowds at Swansea’s Wales Airshow this summer. They’re the first big name to be confirmed for the two-day spectacular due to take place on July 1 and 2. The show’s being organised by Swansea Council.

The Red Arrows are due to visit on both days when there’ll also be many other stars of the skies and a wide range of family fun on the ground.

Last summer’s Wales Airshow was a huge success. Attractions included the Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Council cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies said: “We’re delighted that The Red Arrows will be flying over Swansea again. They’re a huge draw and help illustrate why our armed forces are so important. The airshow contributes millions of pounds to our local economy. We thank businesses and residents for their patience with the necessary road closures and to all traders for their contribution. The airshow will be a fantastic weekend. As the Swansea’s reputation grows as a top class venue for big events, this show’s a great partner for others such as the returning IRONMAN 70.3 Swansea and World Triathlon Para Series Swansea.
