Wales National Air Show entertains hundreds of thousands in Swansea

 

Last weekend, hundreds of thousands of people turned out to watch the two-day 2017 Wales National Air Show.

 

Now an annual fixture of the calendar, the free event is the premiere occasion of its kind in the country and the public’s best opportunity to watch a wide range of vintage and modern state-of-the-art aircraft.

 

It has become one of the most popular events in Wales and the huge numbers are increasing year-on-year with an approximate 250,000 people lining the Swansea Bay beach and seafront for miles and miles.

 

The skies were busy with a 15 aerial performances from aircrafts, such as; The Red Arrows, Typhoon Eurofighter, The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Tigers Parachute Display Team and the Gyro Air Displays Team.

 

The record crowds were also able to enjoy a full military village with Regular, Reservist and Cadet units offered entertainment attractions, such as climbing walls and obstacle courses.

 

It’s a valuable opportunity for the Armed Forces community to engage with members of the public, raising awareness of what they do and sharing information about all three services.
