AIR DISPLAY AND MARITIME EXCLUSION ZONES
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 in place. Mariners please check the timing and boundaries of the MEZ, adhere to the rules and obey an instructions given by the waterborne stewards. The display area will be over Plymouth Sound south of the Hoe out to the breakwater. During the displays, vessels will need to be clear of Plymouth Sound. Access to and from the Sound, the Cattewater and King Point/Millbay will be prohibited.
The timings for this are Saturday 29 June from 4.45pm to 6pm.
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.
We appreciate your co-operation.
