Guernsey Battle of Britain Air Display
Guernsey’s annual air display has been enjoyed by thousands of people for nearly 60 years, hosting some of Britain’s most historic and treasured military aircraft, including the iconic Red Arrows, one of the world’s premier acrobatic display teams.
The Guernsey Air Display plays a crucial role in:
- Commemorating the lives and legacy of all those RAF aircrew who have served their country with honour and pride over the last 100+ years and ensuring the continued preservation of our historic aircraft which enriches our national heritage.
- Celebrating the invaluable work that the RAF Association does for all former and current serving personnel who need support and assistance.
- Inspiring the next generation of pilots, engineers and aerospace professionals.
The Air Display falls within Battle of Britain Week which is the main fundraising event for the Guernsey branch of the RAF Association. In 2020 over £10,000 was raised in the week.
The Air Display relies almost entirely on private funding, from Consortium members and Corporate and individual Friends of the Guernsey Air Display. Without this sponsorship and support, this much-loved spectacle, which is free for all islanders to enjoy, cannot take place.
The Air Display takes place between Guernsey and Herm, with amazing views from Guernsey’s east coast.
