The Oban Hotel, located on Eastbourne’s seafront, is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Airbourne airshow on the 14th – 17th August.

Airbourne is coming to Eastbourne’s skies again this summer, and it is set to be a fantastic four days. Whether it’s your first time at an air show or you’re an air show addict, the Airbourne airshow is set to amaze, delight and entertain.

The show this year will host fast jets, historic aircraft, parachute displays and so much more. The air show is set to bigger and better than ever, especially with the arrival of not just one, but four Red Arrows displays to please the crowds.

Fans can look forward to a wide selection of aircraft, from modern strike fighter jets to historic vintage aircraft from WWII. We can’t forget the popular parachute display teams making a splash as they jump from up to 12, 000ft into the sea.

It’s not the aircraft you have to look forward to either. Eastbourne will also have the Airbourne Stage on the beach this year. Visitors of Airbourne will enjoy a brand new entertainment line-up. This year, X-Factor star Luke Friend will be performing, as well as boy band ‘The Mend’ from Britain’s Got Talent.

That’s just the start of the entertainment. Air show lovers will also be able to revel at The Bandstand; with tribute shows tot the 80’s and Abba as well as Big Band Sound.

If you’re looking for an activity to get your blood pumping then maybe a helicopter flight is more your style. You will soar above Beachy Head and see Eastbourne's beautiful coastline from the sky.

If you’re bringing the kids there will also be two designated play areas for children. There will be giant inflatables and a bungee trampoline to excite and distract them.

At the end of it all, there will be the unmissable grand firework finale. The glittering display will be on Sunday 17th, bringing Airbourne to a perfect end. The RAF Red Arrows themed show with a red, white, blue and gold display will celebrate 50 display seasons with the Red Arrows.

A spokesperson from The Oban Hotel, stated: ‘We’re incredibly excited for Airbourne again this year. It always brings a fantastic crowd to Eastbourne’s beaches, with lots of fun a festivities for locals and visitors to enjoy. Being situated on the seafront means we feel a part of all the action. Being a stones’ throw away from the air show is always exciting. Hopefully, plenty of air show lovers will once again choose our gorgeous hotel as their home for the weekend. With all the excitement, visitors will certainly need somewhere to put their feet up, and rest their tired heads!’
