AIRBOURNE continues along Eastbourne seafront today and concludes tomorrow with a firework display on Wish Tower beach at 10pm.

The free international air show is open from 10am until 4.30pm, but live music continues tomorrow until 7.30pm.

Talent and reality television personalities have appeared throughout the spectacle, including X Factor finalist Luke Friend, The Mend from Britain's Got Talent and Jamie Laing from Made in Chelsea.

Military fast jets, parachutists and helicopters will fly overhead among other show stopping displays.

The Mynarski Memorial Lancaster bomber, known as Vera, will appear as part of a Britain Memorial flight.

The Red Arrows is celebrating its 50th anniversary in its display and a Canberra bomber, the world’s only 1950s aircraft whith nuclear capabilities, will also make an appearance.

Displays will start at midday and continue until 4.30pm.

The Red Arrows display takes place today at 1.45pm and tomorrow at midday.

The Battle of Britain Memorial flight will take place at 3.05pm today and at 1pm tomorrow.

The Blades will appear today at 3.44pm and tomorrow at 12.30pm.

A spokeswoman for Eastbourne Borough Council, which organised the show, said: “The breath-taking Lancaster formation has been a huge highlight for many fans and we are delighted to have shared this with some of the World War II Lancaster veterans who have attended both so far.

“Fans were over the moon yesterday as they met the Red Arrows team in person – their 50th anniversary display with new Union Jack tailfins has been another big crowd pleaser.

“With hundreds of thousands of people watching along the seafront our task is now to generate much needed funds with our ‘Give a Quid’ bucket collections, which supports local charities and secures future flying at Airbourne.

“If you enjoyed the displays, then please show your support.”
