Blackpool Airshow - 'technical difficulties' cause headline act to cancel

The Breitling Jet Team were supposed to be performing over the weekend

The Breitling Jet Team were called in for this years display after the RAF's famous Red Arrows were unable to perform because of a large scale tour in America.

A Visit Blackpool spokesman said:

"Sadly the Breitling Jets have had some technical difficulties on route and will no longer be appearing at today’s Blackpool Air Show.

"There will still be lots to do at the Air Show Village and plenty of displays going ahead."

Crowds gathered on the Promenade still got to see plenty of other marvel's up above, including The Blades Aerobatic team, a Lancaster bomber and the RAF's Typhoon Display team.
