Air Festival scales new heights
BOURNEMOUTH'S fifth Air Festival has been declared a triumph for the UK's leading seaside resort, with an estimated 964,000 festival goers across the four days, and the busiest aeronautical and evening entertainment programmes yet staged.
More than 125,000 visitors and residents packed Bournemouth beach on launch day Thursday, greeting the arrival of the Red Arrows with a roaring cheer and clapping ovation. Another 180,000 arrived on Friday and with temperatures soaring on Saturday, crowds of more than 370,000 people thronged onto the beach, followed by 171,700 on Sunday.
Aviation action came from aircraft including the RAF Tornado, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, the awesome Miss Demeanour, Royal Navy Black Cats and the iconic Avro Vulcan, to name but a few.
The stunning Dusk and Night Air displays on Thursday and Friday nights saw crowds treated to fantastic aviation action by the SWIP Team Twister Duo, fearless Tigers jumping 10,000 feet, O'Briens Flying Circus solo Spitfire and Breitling Wingwalkers.

John Egging memorial
The memorial to Flt Lt Jon Egging, the Red Arrow pilot who lost his life after a display in the 2011 Air Festival was a focal point during the four days of the Festival this year. Situated on the East Cliff, the striking memorial reaches upwards to the sky with three Red Arrows, each on a trail of silver glass with red, white and blue added to represent the coloured smoke which is a part of every Red Arrows display. Pupils from Kinson Primary School came up with the original design which has been created with the blessings of Jon's widow Emma and his mother Dawn who unveiled the memorial.
