Typhoon is bound for resort airshow

Organisers of this year’s Rhyl Air Show are delighted to announce that the RAF Eurofighter Typhoon display team will be making their debut appearance at the air extravaganza, taking place on 24th and 25th of August.

The RAF have confirmed that the Lancaster Bomber, Spitfire and Hurricane will also display, along with the Tucano.

The line–up also includes Team Raven – a formation aerobatic display team flying 5 Van’s RV8 aircraft from Wales, high energy aerobatics from Steve Carver and The Royal Logistic Corps Silver Stars Army Parachute Display Team.

The Rhyl Air Show is recognised as one of the best events of its kind in the country and there is always great anticipation to see what will be appearing.  We have a great line-up in place and this year’s event promises another fabulous attraction for the thousands of residents and visitors expected on the promenade.

Visitors to the promenade will also be able to see at first hand the investment that has gone on, including the completion of building SC2, the flagship waterpark and TAGactive attraction; the 1891 restaurant and refurbished Pavilion Theatre;  two brand new hotels, a bar and carvery, as well as the refurbishment of the Central car park (formerly the underground car park).

The Air Show is a spectacular event that ends the summer season on a real high. Year on year, the Air Show secures displays from some of the leading aviation display teams and historic aircrafts and we have received great feedback from visitors and residents who return time and again for the event.

The town will be buzzing with excitement and we hope that people attending the Show will take the opportunity to visit the town centre and see for themselves the wealth of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars we have in Rhyl.

This event certainly puts the town on the map, it’s great for its reputation and a super opportunity to boost the local economy.
