Update on Rhyl Air Show – Battle of Britain Memorial Flight


Organisers of the Rhyl Air Show have confirmed that the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will not be appearing at the extravaganza this weekend – but all other displays are fully expected to appear as planned, including the iconic Red Arrows Display Team.

Last week, the RAF announced that a routine inspection had highlighted a fault with one of the Merlin engines in a Hurricane aircraft. The RAF are currently investigating the fault and as a precaution, flying of Merlin engine powered aircraft has been paused for safety reasons.

The amended schedule now consists of: Strikemaster Pair, Yak Display,  Trig Aerobics Team, Griffin fly past, Breitling Wing Walkers, Team Raven formation aerobatic display team,  the Bronco Demo Team and the Red Arrows Aerobatic Display Team.

The free event is being arranged by Denbighshire Leisure Services and supported by Rhyl Town Council and the RAF.

 A full round-up of activities at the Air Show, as well as details of car parks and the park and ride system can be found here.
