The two day show takes place on Paignton Green with the Bay providing a stunning natural amphitheatre for viewing the air displays and is the perfect location for a large coastal Airshow event.

All air displays are subject to change depending on weather conditions and operational commitments which could take the military displays elsewhere at short notice.

The Torbay Airshow brings 165,000 people into the Bay each year, to enjoy a world class programme of aerial entertainment as well as enjoy a whole host of entertainment, fun and food at the event village on Paignton Green.

The event is run by Torbay Council. For further information on the event and to keep up to date with the latest news follow @torbayairshow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or visit the event website
