ORGANISERS are promising one of the “strongest ever line-ups” of aerial displays at this year’s Clacton Air Show.

The Red Arrows, Avro Vulcan, Royal Canadian Lancaster and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight are already confirmed for the event, on August 21 to 22.

They will be joined by the Sea King helicopter, Tutor, Autogyro, Essex Air Ambulance, and RAF Tucano.

Now the team has also signed up the Breitling Wingwalkers, the Trig Aerobatic Team, Rolls Royce Spitfire, Bulldog and Richard Goodwin and his modified Pitts S2S GEWIZ.

Tendring Council tourism boss Mark Platt said: “Every year the team works hard to put together the best possible programme to bring in the visitors and thrill those of all ages who turn up for the show.

“They really have pulled out all stops this year and it promises to have all the necessary elements for a great event.

“I am delighted by what we already have in place but I have been told that there will be one more significant announcement which will really put the final touches to the lineup.”

The Breitling Wingwalkers missed Clacton last year.

However, pilot Martyn Carrington, who learned to fly at Clacton Airstrip, loves returning to his home town.

The team have specialised in display flying for almost 30 years and they operate one of the best-known civilian air display acts in Europe.
