2016 saw the inaugural Torbay Airshow and it's back as part of this now annual event. The 2016 show was a huge success with over 100,000 people enjoying the free air shows across two days across the Bay and centred at Paignton. The air show was presented with a silver medal in the 2016 English Riviera and South Devon Tourism Awards. The Military RAF aircraft line-up hopefully once again includes the world’s premier Aerobatic Team The Red Arrows, the Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4, King Air B200 and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight which includes the Hawker Hurricane, Avro Lancaster and a Spitfire. Civilian aircraft to enjoy should include The Blades, Gyro air display (which is bonkers), Strikemaster and even an evening performance by the Twister Aerobatic team with fireworks set off from the air!
