It’s day two of the 2022 Bournemouth Air Festival and once again there is an incredible line up of entertainment. After the Red Arrows had to suspend their display yesterday due to Red 6 reporting “abnormal engine” messages, it is hoped that they will be able to display today at their scheduled time of 4.30pm.
Flying is due to start today at 12.25pm however please note that aircraft are subject to availability and weather conditions and flying times may be subject to change at any time.
