Spectator safety is the highest priority of Plymouth City Council and the air display is run and regulated within the strict guidelines issued by the Civil Aviation Authority.


The air display will take place over water and to protect mariners a Maritime Exclusion Zone (MEZ) will be place. Mariners please check the timing and boundaries of the MEZ, adhere to the rules and obey an instructions given by the waterborne stewards.


Land-based spectators are naturally contained within the safe area by the waterline with the display area offshore, this year we have some additional land based exclusion zones at Jennycliff and Mount Edgcumbe. Please refrain from encroaching on the display areas. To do so puts you at greater risk and, ultimately, could make the Flying Display Director suspend or cancel the display

5.10 to 5.18pm | Navy Wings Heritage Flight Sea Fury T20

The Sea Fury is one of the fastest single piston-engined production aircraft ever built. It was the last propeller driven fighter to serve in the Royal Navy, entering service two years after the end of World War II.

A masterpiece of power and performance, the T20 generates great interest and excitement at air shows around the country.
