Once again the biggest FREE seafront airshow in the world takes to the skies this Thursday (11th August, 2011) in Eastbourne, Cottages on the Sussex coast Airbourne has now been running for 15 years and attracts an estimated 800,000 visitors over the 4-day period Thursday-Sunday. There is a mix of fast jets, freefall parachutists, helicopters as well as spectacular aerobatic displays from the likes of the famous Red Arrows performing this year on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Back on earth there are a wide range of displays from the armed forces as well as trade stands and fun fair attractions. The 4 days end with a breathtaking firework display lighting up the sky on the Sunday evening centering on the pier as a focal point. New for 2011 and working alongside Radio Airbourne on 87.7FM will be Airbourne TV which will enable all the action to be seen on the 3 big-screens located along the seafront.
