Air Waves Portrush prepares for take-off

Air Waves Portrush returns this weekend promising a first class visitor experience.

Up to 150,000 people are expected to descend on the resort to enjoy spectacular aerial entertainment and an exciting range of ground attractions.
Saturday’s flying programme includes the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at 2.50pm and the Typhoon at 4.50pm while the Red Arrows will take to the skies with their signature speed, skill and agility on Sunday at 1.10pm.
The aerial programme also includes the Irish Coastguard helicopter (Saturday only) and a debut performance in Portrush from the vintage Swiss Classic Formation.
On the ground, this year’s STEM Village is the biggest ever and its exciting range of exhibitors will be joined by special guest Dr Norah Patten from County Mayo who is hoping to become Ireland’s first astronaut.
On Saturday evening, Portstewart will host the Air Waves concert at The Crescent with live music and themed dancing alongside an unforgettable pyrotechnic air display and fireworks.
The two-day event comes to a close on Sunday with a poignant Poppy Drop on to East Strand from an overhead Huey helicopter.
