THE wingwalkers have been confirmed for this year’s Bournemouth Air Festival.

The AeroSuperBatics will appear across all four days of the festival which returns between Thursday, September 1 and Sunday, September 4.

It comes after the wingwalker plane had to carry out a “successful ditching” in Poole Harbour on the third day of last year’s event.

The Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) launched an investigation following the incident.

Pilot David Barrell and wingwalker Kirsten Pobjoy sustained minor injuries, while air festival organisers suspended flying for the rest of the day on Saturday, September 4.

The AAIB initially launched a correspondence investigation before upgrading it to a more comprehensive field investigation which is expected to take around a year.

Other acts announced for this year’s air festival include the Red Arrows with the jets taking to the skies on each day of the event with displays at 4.30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 1.30pm on the Sunday.

The Typhoon, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Chinook, Jet Pitts G-PIT Muscle Bi Plane have also been confirmed with the Typhoon, Otto the Helicopter and Tigers lined-up for the dusk display.

This year’s extravaganza is being billed as the Platinum Jubilee Bournemouth Air Festival in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
