Thousands of people will be flocking to Swansea Bay this weekend as the Wales Airshow takes off with 2 days of airshow action.

With Saturday looking likely to be the best day weather-wise, the beaches could be packed for the free event which features the Red Arrows and the RAF Typhoon Display.

There is also a host of ground activities including stands, fairground rides and activities for all ages.

The free event is organised by Swansea Council whose Head of Cultural Services Tracey McNulty said: “Tens of thousands of people will attend this exceptional show, there’ll be lots to enjoy.

“We thank those whose daily routines may have to change due to the road changes which are in place for the safety of all. We also thank all our sponsors and supporters.”

One new area on the ground this year is a Veterans’ Village to honour all ex-service people. As the airshow takes place close to Armed Forces Wee, visitors will be able to celebrate the contributions made by those who have served the UK in the armed forces.
