Sefton Council advertise Red Arrows at Southport Airshow

The Red Arrows will not be appearing in Southport despite Sefton Council advertising otherwise around Southport.

It’s meant to be one of the main gateways into Southport, so why are Sefton lying to our paying tourists? Banners along Eastbank Street, funded by the taxpayer, allegedly shows off the best we have to offer.

However there’s one huge flaw. The council’s advertising campaign for the Air /£92 still shows off the magnificent red arrows.

Unfortunately they aren’t even at this year’s show, favouring a foreign gig instead. The banners have only recently been put up and there was plenty time to amend following the news, however lazy council contractors have left it up.

Red Arrows Southport

Southport Air Show 2017 takes place at Southport Beach on Friday 15th to Sunday 17th September this year.

Last year the Friday night flying was cancelled due to strong winds in Blackpool which made it difficult for planes there to take off.

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to see the famous red planes and colourful trails, you are set to be disappointed.

The Red Arrows will not be showing off their amazing skills at this year’s event.

A spokesperson for the Air Show said: “Sadly for this year the Red Arrows won’t be displaying due to overseas commitments. This is something completely out of our control.”
