For a wonderful day full of jaw-dropping thrills, take off with National Holidays to Farnborough Air Show.
Farnborough Air Show provides a unique opportunity to see the latest innovations in commercial and military aircraft design in one day as the world’s leading aerobatic display teams, wing-walkers, heritage planes, civil airliners and military jets grace the Hampshire skies.
With a wealth of entertainment on the ground too, including static aircraft displays, live music and activities to join in, Farnborough provides a memorable day out for all the family.
At National Holidays our Special Events packages cover the best air shows throughout the UK for you to choose from, including International Air Tattoo, Cosford Air Show and Blackpool Air Show. With hotel stay, ticket admission and coach travel from your local pick-up point, our Special Events coach holidays offer unbeatable value.
Held every two years, Farnborough Air Show has been one of the most prestigious events on the UK aviation calendar for over 70 years, where aviation heritage and the most advanced cutting edge technology combine to create a dazzling showcase.
The Air Show kicks off with a five day trade show, which provides a platform and shop-window for decision-makers in the aerospace-defence industry to do business, but the climax of the event is a spectacular public display, which attracts upwards of 80,000 visitors.
The highlight of Farnborough Air Show is, of course, the diverse range of aircraft on display which you can see grace the skies and get a close look at throughout the static displays on the ground.
The five hour flying display provides a celebration of aviation excellence and the pioneers of the sky. Admire the beauty of vintage aircraft dating back to WW1 before marvelling at the speed and agility of some of the modern commercial planes and powerful supersonic aircraft.
Meanwhile, prepare to be astounded and hold your breath as the aerobatic displays teams, wing-walkers and parachute display teams perform breath-taking manoeuvres, perfectly choreographed formations and jaw-dropping mid-air stunts which are guaranteed to get your adrenaline going.
With live commentary broadcast throughout the event, the flying displays are equally educational as they are enthralling.
Back on the ground there’s so much to see and do for all ages. Get up close to static aircraft, meet and greet the crews and dive into the Space Zone and Innovation Area where you will find lots of activities to try out.
A great day out for the entire family, book today with National Holidays and combine this fantastic family event with a short stay in London.
