Swansea Airshow is back for 2019 and it’s off to a great start.
The two-day event began at 10am when the ground display opened whille the first air displays kicked off at 12.40pm as the Eurofighter Typhoon took to the skies. The timetable of the day in full is here.
The weather forecast for the day is good and there is a bumper crowd in attendance enjoying the show this afternoon.
The world-famous Red Arrows have already arrived in south Wales ahead of their display, which is expected to kick off at around 4.30pm.
This incredible cockpit footage shows the Arrows – officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team – soaring high above Cardiff Airport earlier today:
If you’re still thinking about heading down to the show, or are trying to figure out the best vantage points or where you’ll be able to bag a parking space, then we’ve got everything you need to know here.
And if you can’t make it down during the day then this year, for the first time ever, there will be an After Dark event featuring music, a parachute display, and aerobatics from 8.30pm. If you’re planning on heading along tomorrow instead (or as well) then head here for all the timings you need to know.
