South Devon 2019
Strikemaster. Actual displays have not yet been announced.
Saturday 6th July has been announced as the date for the inaugural Teignmouth airshow.
In the winter of 2018 a possible Teignmouth and Dawlish airshow was suggested, but by the spring it was clear that any such show would be deferred until 2019. The organisers of the Teignmouth airshow are still willing to discuss options with anyone wishing to promote a Dawlish element but it appears at the moment to be a Teignmouth-only airshow.
The airshow will be part of a family weekend of entertainment, including a major music event featuring local bands on Friday 5th and a Family Fun Day on Sunday 7th.
The Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy have been asked to support the show but their responses are not yet known. Any other possible military and civilian displays have also yet to be announced. A further uncertainty surrounds funding, which has to be secured if the show is to go ahead.
|Aircraft due to fly will be listed here when known|
|All appearances are subject to technical, weather and other constraints|
More information including a flying list will be here when details are announced.
Getting to the Show
Use Sat Nav TQ14 8BB until you get close, but ignore the sat nav in favour of local directions signs as soon as you see them. There are links to route planners in the Travel Advice column if you prefer to plan ahead or don't have sat nav.
Accommodation near the show
It is best to book as far as possible in advance. This is not only because nearby hotels and guest houses tend get booked up well before the date of an airshow but also because prices can be better when you book early online.
There are plenty of booking agencies. We find that many of the well known ones are better at finding hotels from international or larger UK chains and may suggest hotels in main towns or cities quite a distance from the show site.
Expedia list a good selection of smaller, as well as bigger, hotels and will find accommodation in villages and small towns as well as the main centres.
Expedia also give, and take, Nectar points.
