According to the official Bray Air Display website, the BBMF Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane will be displaying on Sunday 24th July. This will be the first time the BBMF have flown at Bray. It is rather fitting as the Irish Air Corps, who this year celebrate their centenary, flew both Hurricanes and Spitfires.
A massive announcement from Bray which is sure to attract the crowds.
The orginisers of the Birr Air Display confirmed today, that after a 3 year gap because of the Coivd Pandemic, that the very popular airshow will be returning on the August 1st Bank holiday Monday.
This year will be Birr Air Displays 10th Airshow and is ticket only. Tickets will go on sale soon so please monitor the official Facebook for Birr Air Display for updates and details on when tickets will go on sale.
The line up will be announced when all displays are confirmed, however the show promises to be a “big one” and to be a day of great air displays, and the orginisers have “New tricks up their sleeves” for the popular air display.
I look forward to seeing what Birr have in store for us as they make a big return and it is great to have them back!
The hugely popular event did not take place over the last two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Event organisers made a short announcement on their social media platforms in July 2021 confirming that the event would not go ahead, saying “See you all in 2022”.
It’s understood that the Bray air display committee are expected meet in the coming weeks to decide if the show can go ahead this year.
Rescue 116 staged a fly-past in Bray on July 26 2020, organised by the Irish Coast Guard and the organisers of the air display, as a tribute to healthcare workers who have done so much during the Covid-19 pandemic.
120,000 people attended the Bray air display over the course of two days in 2019.
The annual event regularly draws huge crowds to Bray to enjoy the spectacular aviation displays and other attractions on Bray seafront.
The air display regularly includes flights from historic planes and demonstrations.
It looks like there will be no Bray Air Display in 2021. The official website and twitter has been updated with a ‘See you in 2022’ message. This is a blow to the Bray area, but was to be expected with the current Covid 19 situation in the Republic of Ireland.
Earlier in the year the Patrouille Suisse had a listing for July 24th & 25th 2021 in Bray showing the organisers had been working on a show.
Hopefully this is the final summer of no Airshows in Bray.
Sadly the Bray air display has been cancelled completely after last week their website announced it was postponed. Bray Air Display will return in 2021 “Better than ever”
It’s a big disappointment to announce that the #BrayAirDisplay 2020, which was originally due to take place on July 25th and 26th, is cancelled.
After very careful consideration, the unprecedented impact of the global #COVID19 pandemic has forced this decision in the interests of the health and safety of spectators, participants and the organising team.
We will focus our energies on creating a spectacular event for 2021 when we hope to celebrate happier, safer times.
