2015 saw 24 fabulous years of the annual Clacton Airshow based in the stunning Tendring District along the award winning Essex Sunshine Coast. The event organised by Tendring District Council, is a well established FREE event that "wowed the crowds" of over 220,000 spectators.

Displays and entertainment included Titan the Robot, Red Arrows, Chinook (Thurs), Autogyro, Tigers Parachute Team, Team Raven, Sally B, Tutor & TyphoonBBMF, Rolls Royce Spitfire, Bulldog T1, MiG 15, La Patrouille Reva and a final farewell flight by the Vulcan XH558!

The 2016 event will once again see our award winning seafronts and west greensward be transformed over the two days into a fun filled display/event site and viewing area.  Impressive aerobatic displays will take to the skies whilst a whole host of exhibition, trade stands, food court and on-site entertainment are available at ground level.

Thank you to all that visited/supported the 2015 event. Here is to next year!
