Proceedings get underway at 2pm on Saturday, August 25, with Team Raven formation aerobatic display team and there will be a host of displays throughout the day, ending with the Red Devils Parachute Team at 4.30pm.

On Sunday, August 26, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, featuring a Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota, kicks things off at 2pm with the Red Arrows closing Rhyl Air Show at 5.30pm.

Denbighshire County Council is organising Rhyl Air Show with support from Rhyl Town Council.

Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, leader of Denbighshire County Council, said:

“This year’s line-up is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet with a great mix of displays and ground attractions.

“As well as the Red Arrows, having the last remaining Bristol Blenheim in the world is a real draw for visitors and offers the chance to see a plane instrumental in providing cover during the Dunkirk evacuation.

“With thousands of visitors expected to the area we are encouraging locals to walk or cycle to the event to reduce traffic congestion, but most of all we want the residents of Denbighshire and visitors to enjoy this great free event.”

Other displays include a Strikemaster jet-powered training and light attack aircraft and military aircraft including a Yak-3 and Yak-50.

Ground-based attractions include a replica Hurricane and Spitfire, a host of military vehicles, a Winston Churchill impersonator and stands from the Royal Air Force and the Royal British Legion.

Residents are being encouraged to walk to the event while visitors are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys.

Park and ride services will operate from Ffrith Beach, Prestatyn and Ysgol Glan Clwyd, St Asaph at a cost of £5 to park all day with a shuttle bus operating at regular intervals.

Park and walk services will be in operation from Rhyl Football Club and car parks at Barkby Beach, Beach Road East and the Nova in Prestatyn.

Rhyl Town Mayor, councillor Win Mullen-James said:

“Rhyl Town Council is delighted to once again be able to support this popular event which we believe will be the best yet with not only an exciting line up of aerobatic displays but also attractions in and around the town’s Events Arena.

“This is the tenth year of the Air Show, which Rhyl Town Council has proudly supported from the beginning.”

This year’s Rhyl Air Show is supporting the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
